Launch of the Re.imagining Activism Toolkit
Have you read our Re.imagining Activism guide and been inspired by the content? Are you wondering how to apply the knowledge and ideas to your work? Maybe you think that it is important to inspire colleagues and you want to get them involved in systemic change? Or you would like to try out some new methods for applying the ideas to your campaigns and strategies?
Then check out our brand-new toolkit here. It complements the Re.imagining Activism Guide with a series of online and offline tools. It includes:
A series of introductory modules to engage a new audience with the thinking of the Re.imagining Activism guide.
A series of workshop modules to facilitate sessions and workshops with groups who want to have deeper discussions and explorations on selected themes of Re.imagining Activism.
We are grateful for any feedback or suggestions you might have, especially after having used the material.
In case you haven't yet read the Re.imagining Activism Guide or would like to order copies for your organisation or network, please use the button bellow, or click here to download the free pdf version.
Based on the research collated and the ideas and experiences generated by the Smart CSOs Lab, our recent publication Re.imagining Activism - A Practical Guide for the Great Transition is a practical tool for activists and social change leaders. It provides guidance and support to activists who want to make a meaningful contribution to this deeper change. Re.imagining Activism provides practical advice and questions to ask ourselves when we want to change organisations, campaigns or become active on system change in another way. You can download a pdf copy of the guide here.
Re.imagining our strategies: How can we practically go about moving from mainstream activism to systemic activism? What are the roles of systemic activism that my organisation or network can take on?
Re.imagining our organisations: What needs to change in my organisations to become fit for the Great Transition? How can I initiate systemic change in my organisation?
Re.imagining ourselves as activists: How can we personally transcend our current paradigms and think differently as activists?
Re.imagining funding: If I am a grant maker, how can my organisation become a systemic funder?
For most civil society organisations and actvist networks that are fighting for justice and and a more sustainable world questioning the underlying economic model is not a core issue in their campaigns and projects. Our short movie is intended to change this by starting a public conversation on the role of markets and money in our society. Check out www.the-numbers.org
