If you’ve ever wanted to respond to an issue in the world and wondered how to make the change, these workshops are for you.
Every movement starts with a group of individuals sharing ideas.
Change24 is a programme taking you through the ‘how to’s of social action + campaigning, it works off the idea that in order to change the world, that we learn how to change a community and individuals first.
It could be a poster campaign to challenge stereotypes in your college, it could be a march connecting in to the climate change strikes happening across the world. Big or small, Change 24 teaches us how to build a campaign and keep it running.
Through interactive activities and discussion, working in a group, we’ll work through the different elements and skills of running a project.
Things like: How to be a good leader, how to connect with other campaigns and movements, how to storytell, to communicate the purpose of your project.
