Want to take action and fight for what’s right, but don’t know where to start?

Lead the Way is the ultimate guide to activism and making systematic change, your way. Jean Hinchliffe is one of the key organisers of School Strikes 4 Climate, and in this book she shares her tools, stories and learnings from the movement with you.

From identifying your cause to finding allies, planning a march, nailing your messaging, public speaking and working with the media, to the importance of self-care when you’re on your activist journey, Lead the Way will guide you to start changing the world today.

Teenagers are leading the way towards a better future and you can too.

‘Jean is the kind of leader that I want to work with. She possesses the four chambers of a change-making heart, she has big ideas but also wants to listen, she’s gathered the tools and also wants to share them. It is no fluke that Jean is in the engine room of the movement and no accident that she’s inviting you to join her.’– Yael Stone
