One-Day Introduction to Community Organising

This one-day course is an introduction to community organising as a process which can reach out and bring people together to form stronger relationships and develop community activities together. Community organisers do not do things on behalf of people but motivate and facilitate people to make small and powerful changes locally and for wider social change.

During this course you will explore:

  • what community organising is;
  • the importance of listening to build relationships and uncover issues;
  • power in communities and why it matters;
  • how to motivate people to take action;
  • how to take your next steps in community organising and social action.

I loved the training. I learned a lot and cannot wait to put it into practice. The listening exercise made me reflect on how I have been listening to others and sometimes not hearing them. Also, I found the power session very interesting as I can see the how it translates into my community.

The workshop will look at how community organising can used to mobilse people and bring them together to create a stronger community.
