Join the inspirational activist Amika George MBE as she introduces Make it Happen, a vitally important handbook about how anybody can make a difference.

The world is waking up to the fact that society is arranged to benefit some more than others. There is much that needs changing and you can be the one to do it. Anyone can make history, including a teenager launching a global campaign from their bedroom. In this essential step-by-step guide, Amika inspires young people to become activists. With chapters on finding your crowd and creating allies, how to get those in positions of power and influence to listen, how to use social media effectively and how to look after your mental health while protesting, Amika will you show you how you can make real and lasting changes in your world.

Amika George succeeded in campaigning to get the government to fund free period products in every school across England. In 2021 she was awarded an MBE at only 21 years old.
