What are we doing to ourselves when we tell ourselves we’re Consumers 3000 times a day?

What would it look like to put the same creativity and energy into involving people as Citizens?

What would you do in this time, if you truly believed in yourself and those around you?

In Citizens, Jon Alexander explores what citizenship means today and argues that now is the time to reclaim the language around citizenship while making visible stories of this new way of living. Here, with New York Times bestselling writer Ariane Conrad, Alexander explores what we need to do to step into a bigger idea of ourselves as Citizens: collaborative, caring, creative creatures who can shape our communities, organisations, and nations for the better.
