Making change happen
The Change Agency is an independent social movement education initiative. We work with community organisers and activists in the Australia Pacific region to help people win social and environmental change.
We develop, collect and share tools to help activists and community organisers define and achieve their goals. We research social change to learn what works, and draw on action research to inform our facilitation and educational work. Our two major projects currently are the Campaigners Toolkit and the Community Organising Fellowship.
Applications for the 2017 Community Organising Fellowship open in August 2016. Let us know if you’d like to be emailed when applications open.
Our website provides access to our growing collection of training resources, activist research including case studies and articles, outlines of our workshops, a calendar of training opportunities, and links to other activist education websites. We regularly update our catalogue of favourite books and circulate a free monthly social change enews with updates on activist education and research resources, projects and opportunities. Subscribe here. We also provide a mentoring and advisory service for community organisers.
We lead workshops with people working for a just, sustainable and peaceful world. If you are interested in being more effective in your work or inspired and informed by others who are working for change, let’s start a conversation.
Our team acknowledge that we live on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s Country.
