'How to make change': An introduction to community organising

Start: Saturday, November 06, 2021 9:30 AM

End: Saturday, November 06, 2021 4:30 PM

What are you angry about? What is putting pressure on you, your family and your community? And more importantly, what on earth can you do about it?!

For almost 10 years, Nottingham Citizens has been working across the county for justice and the common good. Together, we form a diverse alliance of almost 40 civil society institutions from education, faith and third sector backgrounds. We train local people in the craft of Community Organising, equipping them with the practical tools to change the world from what it is, to what they believe it should be.

We believe Community Organising works. This training will unpack the argument for Community Organising and share some of the practical tools we can use to act together for change, including our '5 Steps to Social Change' model. Trainees will leave having made a personal action plan for how they will go about making change, with ongoing support from our professionally trained community organisers.

'How to make change' will take place on Saturday 6 November 2021, in-person (public health guidelines permitting). Hot and cold drinks and snacks will be provided. Please bring a packed lunch with you.

If you have any questions and would like to know if this training would be right for you please speak to your organisational leader or contact our organisers Pete Rogers (pete.rogers@nottinghamcitizens.org) or Heidi Shewell-Cooper (heidi.shewell-cooper@nottinghamcitizens.org)
