The Social Change Project

The Social Change Project asks how social change is happening today and how we can strengthen civil society’s efforts.

Change itself is constantly changing: where it occurs, who’s involved, who decides, how new ideas are generated, what blocks it and what boosts it. We stay curious about change. If you’re interested in civil society and social change, join our community. Come to an event, write a blog, listen to the podcast, read our report, write a blog.

The Social Power Report

Civil society can unleash ‘social power’ by being bolder and braver. Our tools will help you think differently.

How our Social Change Grid is helping to drive change

Campaigners and organisations  map their activity and ask how they can expand into different quadrants

Funders  map their grants and ask if they are too focused in particular quadrants.

Researchers  use it to guide interviews with change-makers.

Thought leaders  explore and map the activity of whole sectors.

Coalitions  map members’ activity and to ask who they can collaborate with in under-represented quadrants.

Social entrepreneurs  use it to understand the wider change eco-system their solution can compliment.
