Tool: Involve Business
This is one of 15 civic engagement tools to Shift the Country.
Quick Overview: Involve Business
Businesses and corporations can be partners for transformation, or obstructers of it. Businesses can be pillars of the community, and can champion public health and other civic action. They can also actively damage public health, health, the environment, community resources, and trust. This tool gets into various options for partnering with and/or pressuring small businesses to large corporations for the kinds of civic change we need – whether through community engagement, partnership, problem-solving, innovation, entrepreneurialism, sustainable development, boycotts, social media pressure, or responsible/conscientious business practices/standards.
