Action For Change Through Community Organising

This interactive one-day course will explore how you can make change for good through collective action. You will explore the different types of action you can take, from DIY action to campaigning, explore stories of action and success factors and learn how to develop a strategy for change based on listening, building people power, leadership and picking tactics and methods for action.

On this course we get to the heart of the action. What can we do together to create change in our neighbourhoods and communities? How do we know what is the right action to take? How do we mobilise our network of people? How do we work together to lead change? Learn about calling people to action through stories and how community organising enables people to lead and support action which makes them feel powerful together.

During this course you will explore:

  • what motivates people to take action in their community;
  • the purpose of action in community organising and different types of organised action;
  • how to develop a power map and a strategy for action – develop your confidence in leading collective action;
  • the importance of reflecting on action.
