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.


Build you own workshop series

Then, you are invited to choose five topics from our varied selection of nine 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

Once you’re aboard the Campaign Carousel, you have the option of joining our quarterly on-line 90 minute brunch gatherings. These informal get-togethers will bring together current and former Carousel riders to create a sense of on-going community, share ideas, and engage in topical discussions.  These events will allow you to keep in regular contact with fellow riders and support 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.
