About the Author
In Taking Action Online, Adam Rogers shares 30 years of experience to explain how you can use computer networks to inform, inspire and engage with others today, as part of your contribution to creating a much better tomorrow. Rogers has traveled much of the world in his quest for knowledge about the world we live in, having lived, worked and studied in more than 130 countries. He has worked for the United Nations for much of the past 25 years – as a communication advisor, as a senior policy advisor for programmes and policy and finally as the global coordinator of the World Alliance of Cities Against Poverty. Before that, he worked as a journalist, an author, and as an entrepreneur. He has written several books, including The Earth Summit: A planetary reckoning, Taking Action: an environmental guide for you and your community, and The Intrepid Traveler: getting the ultimate experience for your travel dollars anywhere on earth. Another book, The No Mammal Manifesto: Diet for a new and more sustainable world, explores the links between a “red” meat-centered diet and the economy, human health and the environment.
