Featuring profiles of real “Difference Makers” and practical tools readers can use to support causes they are passionate about, The Teen Guide to Global Action provides everything youth need to start making a difference at the local, national, or global level.

From suggestions for reducing hunger and poverty and protecting human rights to environmental projects and efforts to promote peace, this book provides know-how teens can use to make the world a better place. There’s also a healthy dose of inspiration. Whether it’s reading about Zach Hunter, who started an organisation devoted to ending modern-day slavery, or Janine Licare, who is helping protect Costa Rican rain forests, teens reading these and dozens of other stories will realise they don’t have to wait to become an adult to change the world.
