A BOOK FOR THOSE WANTING TO EFFECT CHANGE IN AOTEAROA
'What can we do?' is a common response to social, political or environmental issues. At this critical time, the ability to actively engage with concerns facing our communities is a vital skill. Tutira Mai helps readers to generate realistic and effective ways to make change, with first-hand accounts of success and failure through real-world case studies. Part of a series exploring and promoting citizenship in Aotearoa, Tutira Mai combines ways to identify and analyse issues with information on how to actively engage with them. It also discusses the ethical risks inherent in active citizenship within a New Zealand context. Topics include justice reform, gender in the classroom, environmental care and management, sport and positive social change, taking action on mental health, digital democracy, social entrepreneurship, and direct action, among others. Written both for students wanting to apply skills to real-world problems, and those who want to find solutions to issues that affect them, their whanau and their communities.
