Free Movement Building Training by Animal Think Tank, August 10/11 in London

“This free training is for people in the animal justice movement who want to think big and get inspired.

The deadline for applications is 1st May. 

Day 1: Introduction to Movement Building

This training will introduce you to different theories of change to help you understand how social change happens. It will look at different organising traditions and see how they can be used to make your groups more effective. The training will introduce you to a strategic planning framework which we will practice using to see how we can achieve big long-term goals.

Day 2: Advanced Training in Movement Building 

This training is for those who have attended Day 1 and want to get a deeper understanding of movement building. It will look at how to campaign effectively and make use of a wide range of tactics. It will explore ways to grow the movement and build power over time. You will have the opportunity to plan and execute an action in groups and come back together to share your experiences. The training will also look at the natural cycle of social movements so we can see where we fit into the bigger picture. 

The training will be participatory and interactive. There will be lots of opportunities for group work, discussion and hands-on activities to help us share, learn from and build on each others’ experiences and put ideas into practice. The training is free of charge and open to those at all levels of knowledge and experience.

Apply for either Day 1 only or both days here:

Attendance on both days is highly encouraged. 
The deadline for applications is 1st May. 

Testimonials for our last Movement Building Training:

“I really really enjoyed the workshop and learned a lot which will inform my campaigning.”

“I got so much from it – great to have the opportunity for open space discussions and so many practical examples & concepts to put into action! Thank you!”

“Overall I give the workshop a very high mark, not least because you’ve made it seem that activism is not only morally and ethically sound, it’s also fun!”
