Planning for change

group of people sitting in circle on chairs having a discussion

How can we bring diverse perspectives – especially those of people with first-hand experience – into planning strategic campaigns? And why is it so important that we do? 

In this bitesize online event, you will learn how to: 

  • Use the Problem Tree, a planning tool to identify a clear problem, solution and route to change 
  • Explore diverse entry points for a campaign and how to pick the right ones 
  • Adopt new tools to help with ongoing planning 
  • Centre first-hand experience in all of this! 

Find out more about the Problem Tree planning tool here:  

You’ll also hear from staff at Inquest about their work with families on the Grenfell Project for the No More Deaths campaign. 

There will be plenty of time to ask questions and reflect together about how you can apply what you’re learning to your own work.  

This is the second of a free four-part series on campaigning in solidarity for organisations funded by the Oak Foundation. Drop into this event or sign up to the whole series. If you have any questions, please get in touch by emailing
