Re.Imagining Activism: The Toolkit
We are so excited to be able to tell you our latest news: our toolkit is now online! Based on our October 2015 publication of the Re.Imagining Activism Guide, the toolkit is designed to guide workshops on how to use systems thinking to work towards the Great Transition.
The Introductory Modules promote initial discussion on key topics. The series of Workshop Modules foster deeper thought. Sessions include a suggested agenda for each session, supporting materials, and external resources and further reading.

Additions to the Reading List
We enjoyed reading Mob Lab‘s piece on how Greenpeace Spain worked to challenge and overcome entrenched institutional biases to during the 2016 national elections.
“[This time] we decided to focus the electoral year in a different way, to situate Greenpeace in the new Spanish political and social context,” said Cantero. “[Our] objective was to increase the presence of environmental discourse [among] the public and politicians.”
Michael Edwards discusses lessons for NGOs that came out of a debate at the IDS in Brighton in July. The article provides two options for NGO strategies, and tackles tensions within and between these, allowing space for multiple interpretations.
“...there won’t be one common pattern, but there will be increasing differentiation within the NGO community as each agency moves forward.”
Our growing team
We added two new members to the team in June, to make our five-strong core team. Click here to meet the team and find out what we’re all doing to work together toward the Great Transition.
