Summary
Tisch has devoted a lifetime to “active citizenship.” It?s an idea that uses the power of practical creativity and grassroots participation to solve seemingly intractable problems. In Citizen You, Tisch challenges readers to join this movement and points the way toward making our world a better place, one person and one neighborhood at a time. Through remarkable stories, you?ll learn how today?s active citizens are transforming thinking about social change. Rather than short-term fixes and hand-me-down charity, they?re striving to build sustainable, systemic solutions to our most challenging problems, building and empowering communities rather than fostering dependency. And they?re using a host of new tools, from online networking and private-public partnerships to corporate engagement and social entrepreneurship, to redefine how change can happen. Citizen You is a potent antidote to pessimism. At a time of unprecedented challenges on the national and world stage, when active citizenship is not a choice but a necessity, Citizen You dares us to reshape the social, political, and intellectual structures that have long confined us, and offers fresh thinking that redefines the very concept of activism. --
