About this course (not another toolkit for activists!)
The majority of courses and toolkits seek to provide us with a roadmap for how to ‘do’ activism. They look at change-making as something external, while neglecting an important thing: we are part of the very systems, structures and institutions that we seek to change. The personal lens through which we see ourselves, others and the world is important.
When we forget this, our activism can be ineffective, stressful and put a strain on our physical and mental wellbeing. This manifests itself in an increasing number of change-makers feeling hopeless, despairing and burnt out.
This course looks at the inner dimension of change. This course is about you. It will help you to develop new skills, new capacities and new ways of seeing yourself, others and the world in your activism – the work is personal. By helping you understand your role as an activist, this course will help you become a more effective change-maker, in whatever area you’re working in.
This course will help you uncover the internal narrative and story you hold about yourself, others and the world within your activism. It will provide you with space for reflection on how this story impacts the change you want to make. Of course, you’ll also receive tips and tricks on how to implement the skills you’ve learned in your activism to make effective change. As well as being a learning experience, the course will also be a fun journey for you personally, one that will help you understand yourself better, connect more easily with others and think outside the box.
