How make change happen.
Duncan Green’s new book How Change Happens
How can we understand the events, individuals and institutions that change the world? Can we use this to change things for the better? How can we really understand how change happens?
How Change Happens
How Change Happens is a new book from Duncan Green which explores the major themes that make change happen in the world. Whether you are an activist, campaigner, development practitioner, lobbyist, entrepreneur, individual or an organisation, it seeks to understand how power and systems shape change, and how you can influence them.
