Here’s a little more info about the session I’m running –
Introduction to Campaigning.
Effective campaigns set the agenda on a social or environmental issue and build momentum for change.
This workshop will provide an overview of approaches to social change and discuss when and why a campaign would be the right fit. What are the elements of an effective campaign? Should you join an existing campaign or start a new one? And if so, how do you get started?
This workshop is a great prequel to the workshop on Campaign Planning and Strategy.
Hope to see you there! Many thanks to Ross House for making this happen.
