The basic building blocks for all campaigners

The four central online modules of The Campaign Carousel™ offer a grounding in the basics. They include: Introduction to campaigning and social change; Analysing the problem and planning for change; Communicating for change and Evaluation and measuring impact. These core elements will stand you in good stead whatever your campaigning interests or change goal.

You can spread most of these throughout the year but you must take the Introduction to Campaigning and Social Change course first.

All Carousel participants will also have the option to join an additional free 2-hour workshop the following day of their chosen Introduction to Campaigning and Social Change workshop. This extra session will allow participants to look in-depth at how they can embed the learning into their own campaigns.


Build you own workshop series

Then, you are invited to choose five topics from our varied selection of eight three-hour online workshops. These have been designed to offer you the flexibility to delve deeper into skills and topics that are of particular interest to you. Some are campaign disciplines, some explore emerging issues and some are about you and your confidence and well-being.


A campaigning community

During your year aboard the Campaign Carousel, you have the option of joining an on-going community with your fellow riders. You will be able to keep in regular contact, sharing experience and ideas, and supporting each other as you progress.


On-going coaching

Throughout the year, you will have access to two drop-in coaching sessions with the course director, Kathleen Christie. These will give you the chance to explore dilemmas and pick the brains of our experienced staff and Associates.
