Politics affects everything we do, but it is often confusing and complicated. Understanding how the system works and how to influence decisions are essential skills for every citizen. The world’s most urgent problems are political. Humanity has the knowledge and resources to solve them, but often lacks the political ability and will to do so.
This book is an introduction to learning practical politics to show how education can create opportunities for people to learn how to resolve political problems. For democracy to work everyone needs to be able to do politics as a basic skill, like reading and writing. This remarkable book provides the basis for practical politics as a new subject in every education institution.
