Campaign strategy and civil resistance workshops in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, March & April 2020

January 29, 2020 | By: James Whelan

The Change Agency team hit the road this March and April, with workshops in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

James and Adele will lead 2-day Campaign Strategy workshops for community campaigners and organisers. These workshops equip participants with a suite of tools to analyse their social and political context, define your objectives, choose the right target and focus, assess political opportunities, and prioritise the most powerful tactics. The workshops are participatory, practical and fun.

Jason and James will lead 1-day Civil Resistance workshops to explore the power of civil resistance (aka nonviolent resistance, nonviolent action, NVDA and people power) to win tangible victories for local communities and the environment. This workshop will be of particular interest to people who are considering engaging in direct action. We’ll draw on theory, practice, stories, and learning through doing.
