FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On Digital Advocacy: Saving the Planet While Preserving Our Humanity Sheds Light on the Importance of Human-Centric Digital Advocacy
Wheat Ridge, CO — July 18, 2023 Fulcrum Publishing is excited to announce the publication of the debut book by Katie Boué, On Digital Advocacy: Saving the Planet While Preserving Our Humanity (accompanied by On Digital Advocacy: The Toolkit).
Whether you hike, bike, camp, climb, hunt, ride, paddle, paint, garden—whatever way you get out and enjoy nature, you leave an impact on the outdoors every time you set foot out your front door. Every step your boots take down dusty trails, every bolt your clip draws into, every time you cruise down a dirt road, till the soil, you leave an impact.
Outdoor recreation inherently leaves an impact on the land, but we can work to offset that impact by advocating for earth in our own circles, online, and in our neighborhoods. The question is, can we use the digital space to protect the outdoors while still protecting our human spirit?
Gale Straub, author and creator of She Explores, says, “The book is a refreshing invitation to breathe and get curious about the things that matter most to us. And along the way, Boué generously grants us the tools we need to make a real difference—all delivered with her trademark gusto and grace.”
We all share a responsibility to protect our planet––especially those of us in the outdoor industry––and in the digital age, access to advocacy is abundant. Social media hands us the tools to get educated, gather resources, organize, and empower ourselves with whatever slice of the “save the planet” pie tickles our appetites to do good. The opportunity and potential for digital advocacy is dizzying––but what happens when we begin to tangle our personal identities with our pursuit of saving a dying earth? As users of public lands, we have an ethical responsibility to the planet. As inhabitants of our identities, we have an ethical responsibility to ourselves, too.
Inside, the book covers topics such as:
The two types of advocacy
Becoming an advocate for the outdoor industry
Voting for the outdoor spaces you love the most
The Advocacy Retention Cycle
Online bullying and stalking
With its engaging prose and thought-provoking content, On Digital Advocacy offers a comprehensive guide for individuals, activists, social media users, and outdoorists alike. It serves as a timely reminder of the importance of self care and preservation while being an advocate for the planet.
