CITIZEN YOU

Doing Your Part to Change the World

By Jonathan Tisch

Crown; on-sale May 4th, 2010

 

What many Americans have learned, sometimes painfully,
over the last several years is not to rely on government
and big business to address every problem. In a time of
unprecedented challenges nationally and globally, citizen
engagement is not a choice -- it's a necessity. In an
exciting new publication, CITIZEN YOU: Doing Your Part
to Change the World
(Crown; May 4, 2010; $24) bestselling
author and Chairman and CEO of Loews Hotels Jonathan Tisch uncovers what he calls active citizens--people who use their professional skills to alleviate a social problem in a sustainable way. In the process he shows readers how to discover their own purpose, and better yet, how to join an inspiring new movement.

 

Tisch explains that active citizenship is different from the
noble but inherently limited tradition of volunteerism, because
active citizens don't stop after volunteering. They go further
 and examine the root causes of the problems that inspired
them to serve in the first place -- problems like hunger,
poverty, illiteracy, and inequality. “All around the country,”
says Tisch, “I've met people who want to be involved in
this new activism, but don't know how.” CITIZEN YOU
shows people how easy it is to integrate these concepts
into their lives, no matter who they are or what their background.

 

CITIZEN YOU reveals the new trends in today’s civic
engagement movement, exploring the shift from volunteerism
to active citizenship, from charity to social entrepreneurship,
 from targeted philanthropy to systemic change, and from
top-down paternalism to community-based action often
driven by online social media.  What readers discover is how professionals of all stripes are becoming citizen teachers,
 lawyers and engineers. Business leaders are integrating
 social impact into strategic decisions. Cities and companies
are forming social service programs.  For example, in the book
we learn about:

 

The kind of action mentality that inspired Scott Harrison,
a former night club promoter and party planner who was
concerned about the lack of clean, safe drinking water in the developing world. By founding charity: water, he realized that
 he could put his networking and marketing skills to work
to help millions of people drink safely.

 

College student Steffi Coplan, who wanted nearby
disadvantaged kids to have access to the same things
that most excited her from her studies. By introducing the Broadway2Broadway project, she spread her passion for the
American musical to a community that never would have been
exposed to it. By doing so she provided them with the
 motivation to chart productive paths they might
not have dreamed of.

 

Will Allen, a basketball player turned famed “urban farmer,”
 who realized that inner-city residents had access only to
fast food instead of healthy natural fruits and vegetables.
So Allen founded Growing Power which transforms urban
vacant lots in the Midwest into small farms. By doing so he has
created jobs, improved the nutrition of some 10,000 people
and provided a practical model of reform that he hopes to
spread to locations around the country. 

 

This philosophy of active citizenship has long been the
inspiration for philanthropist Jonathan Tisch, the CEO of
 Loews Hotels and a member of one of New York City’s
most civic-minded families—one that has supported many
 of the country’s notable institutions and programs.

 

Whether we are business or civic leaders, students graduating
this May, professionals or ordinary individuals, CITIZEN YOU helps find a path to active citizenship that feels right for anyone.
