How to be an Activist
Elizabeth May, a Sierra Club of Canada Executive Director
for 17 years, developed her "How to be an Activist" pamphlet
to teach others how to become active campaigners. The original
How to be an Activist,
first published online in 1996 is a practical guide to campaigning.
10 years later, Elizabeth May has written a definitive followup
to the "How to be an Activist" guide -
How to Save the World in Your Spare Time published by Key Porter
Whoever said "you can't fight city hall," never
had access to a book like this. An invaluable guide and fascinating
glimpse into the life of a tireless campaigner for the planet,
How to Save the World In Your Spare Time can show
anyone how to fight for a cause.
A veteran environmental organizer and activist, Elizabeth
May has put decades of experience and advice into this entertaining
read. Sprinkled throughout are stories of her career in activism:
from adventures in the Amazon with Sting and Gordon Lightfoot,
to surprising stories of Canadian political figures including
the late Dalton Camp and Prime Minister Paul Martin.
Read the opening chapter
to what reviewers have called "the go-to guide that shows
you how to fight for a cause".
