How To Make a Difference comes from not-for-profit organisation One Young World

Romilly Morgan, senior commissioning editor at Octopus, has won an auction to sign for the Cassell list How To Make a Difference, written by Kate Robertson and Ella Robertson of One Young World and containing advice from activists include Sir Bob Geldof and Fatima Bhutto. Cassell has UK and Commonwealth rights from Zoe King at AM Heath, and will publish in September.

Topics in the book include how to change the law, how to protest, how to use social media, and how to change a big organisation.

One Young World stages an annual summit, at which delegates from round the world are counselled by influential political, business and humanitarian leaders.

The Robertsons said: "Despite everything that One Young World has achieved, exceptional young leaders are needed more than ever before. How To Make a Difference takes its inspiration from the same urgent need that motivated us to establish One Young World - there's leadership vacuum in the world and young leaders can take us to a better place."
