Can civil society organisations have access to the same resources and expertise as corporations?
For Andrea Boccuni, head of partnership and education at The Good Lobby (TGL), the answer is called citizen lobbying.
The Good Lobby is a community of citizens, academics, professionals who devote a part of their time to civil society organizations pursuing objectives of general interest and that on average dispose of few resources and are unable to stand up to entities that have more resources and power.
This month, Copernico Science14 co-organized and hosted a workshop with The Good Lobby and Change Finance, an international citizens’ movement acting for fairer and sustainable financial services across the globe. We met Andrea who explained why we urge citizens to lobby more.
