Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
since Ritter has been mentioned, another possibility is "networking", using connections to find receptive ears in the corridors of power

I note I used "networking" in a much wider sense. What that Peruvian woman Barbara met did must have involved 'networking' at a very local level, i.e. getting together neighbours and waste disposal companies and maybe some bureaucrats to establish a system that Changed the World. For varied reasons, I think this basic level of networking is missing for almost all of us ET regulars.
