Introduction to Campaigning and Social Change

This online workshop gives campaigners a well-rounded understanding of power, social change and campaigning. You will learn about SMK’s ground-breaking concept of Social Power and how it can drive truly transformational change.

We all have power, but few of us understand the full spectrum of where and how we can wield it, share it or combine it to create change. SMK’s unique tool, the Social Change Grid, will help you explore the whole ecosystem of change – from transformational service delivery and community organising to mass mobilisation and lobbying.

We will look at case studies of successful campaigns and ask what qualities they share. We’ll also explore the 12 Habits of Successful Change-Makers, ways of thinking and behaving that are common amongst effective campaigners. These habits have helped people and organisations at every level to achieve lasting social change.

Participants will:

  • Gain insight into SMK’s unique analysis of how social change happens
  • Examine the concept of Social Power and examples of how it has been successfully harnessed
  • Understand the basics of analysing power and learn how to start planning effective campaigning activity
  • Understand the habits that make change successful at an individual and organisational level.

This workshop will be led by trainer Emma Burnell, a campaigns and public policy professional with nearly two decades of experience who is also a talented and highly sought after writer and commentator.

*Those taking this workshop through the campaign carousel will be offered a 2-hour free additional workshop the following day to look in-depth at the change you are seeking and how you can use your social power to make this difference.
