Teach Your Granny to Text and Other Ways to Change the World Paperback
Illustrated by Neal Layton
"Teach Your Granny to Text" is the children's sequel to "Change the World for a Fiver", the bestseller produced by the global social change movement, We Are What We Do.
It's a movement whose aim is to inspire people - in this case children - to use their everyday actions to change the world.
Their maxim is: small actions X lots of people = big change.
It's not rocket science but it does work! The thirty actions in this book will be fun and easy for children to do but will add up to making a big difference and giving them the responsibility for changing the world, one bit at a time.We Are What We Do began life in the UK as a project of the charity Community Links, an innovative inner city charity running community-based projects in east London.
The charity's founder, David Robinson, had the original idea after 25 years as a community worker in east London where he saw both the need for change and the power of people coming together to make it happen.
David was joined by a small development group which included people from the creative industries, business, the voluntary sector and government. Among this group was Eugenie Harvey, an Australian with a background in communications and marketing.
Shortly after meeting David and joining the group, she quit her job and joined as a volunteer to develop the project.
