Jean Hinchliffe

Lead the Way is your ultimate guide to activism and making systematic change, your way. Jean Hinchliffe is one of the key organisers of School Strikes 4 Climate, and in this book she shares her tools, stories and learnings from the movement with you.

From identifying your cause to finding allies, planning a march, nailing your messaging, public speaking and working with the media, to the importance of self-care when you’re on your activist journey, Lead the Way will guide you to start changing the world today.

Teenagers are leading the way towards a better future and you can too.


Are you a young person? Are you worried about a particular social issue? Do you want to make a change, but are unsure of how to go about it? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Lead the Way is the perfect guidebook for you.

Written by teenage climate activist Jean Hinchliffe, Lead the Way is an intelligent and insightful guide to the ins, outs and in-betweens of activism for teens. Through in-depth lists and thoughtful anecdotes, Hinchliffe provides information on how to be a successful activist, from tips on founding a movement (complete with advice on how to, among other things, attract support, conduct media interviews and organise a rally) to practising self-care and avoiding burnout. Hinchliffe also explains and reflects on inclusivity and the nature and distribution of power in activism and the wider world. A perfect introduction to activism for readers ages 12+.
