Many citizens from Basel in Switzerland were disgusted when they heard that their city canton's government had selected Syngenta as the main sponsor of Basel's appearance at the 2015 World Fair in Milan. The multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation stands for toxic pesticides, genetically engineered seeds, patents on plants and industrial agriculture, a main culprit of global warming. Soon after the announcement, NGO alliance MultiWatch hosted a two-day conference; it also organized Basel's first 'March against Monsanto and Syngenta'. This book is a compilation of the team's findings after one year of watching Syngenta, and also includes contributions by Vandana Shiva and other guest authors supporting the campaigners. The bottom line is that there is no room for this multinational corporation in sustainable and ecological agriculture.

Our world has faced some remarkable changes over the past few decades due to the rapid development of new technology and the Internet. However, a few years back, a new era began, an era where ordinary people have a ‘say’ on every possible matter, anytime, anywhere – the emergence of social media has altered our lives enormously by giving everyone the opportunity to be a publisher and a communicator. This, in turn, has had a huge impact on the Public Relations practice, which has always been concerned with communicating and building relationships with various publics on behalf of organisations. This book describes how exactly social media altered the PR industry and the way practitioners are doing PR using social media in their professional and private lives. It is therefore especially useful to both students and professionals in the fields of PR, Social Media, Communications and Marketing, or anyone else who is interested in learning more about social media's impact on PR.
