What is Influencing Change?
Take your campaigning skills to the next level. Refresh your knowledge of planning and delivering a campaign, then look at best and next practice in social change. You’ll leave with new knowledge, tools, confidence and networks to help you make the change you seek.
Taking place over five days, spread over three months, workshops include:
– the fundamentals of planning a campaign, from strategy to evaluation
– using digital tools
– influencing politicians
– using the law
– the power of creativity
– working in coalitions
– mobilising supporters
– self-care for campaigners.
You will also hear from leading thinkers and practitioners in the campaign community. Previous courses have featured campaigning heavyweights, including, No More Page 3, Shelter, Friends of the Earth, NSPCC, The Hillsborough Campaign and 38 degrees. As well as sessions run by the Houses of Parliament, New Philanthropy Capital, the BBC, and The Daily Mail.
We’ll support you to develop ideas alone and in groups, and apply what you learn to your own work.
You’ll also become a member of our Influencing Change London alumni network and be invited to two networking events each year.
Is there an option for follow-up support?
We offer the option to purchase follow-up mentoring support with a highly skilled campaign coach. And our alumni networking events are a great space for ongoing sharing and reflection with fellow campaigners.
