Today the problem is that we see too many decisions being taken by a small group of people, sitting behind a desk and talking on behalf of a whole population. This is where the Good lobby comes in: our objective is to demistify and democratise lobbying, with the aim of welcoming anyone interested in being part of the conversation.
I often think of my daughters and the world they will grow up in. I want them to live in a world where their voice is heard.
