The Change Agency CAMPAIGNERS TOOLKIT

View in full at The Change Agency

Build your own toolkit!

This toolkit from the Australia-based The Change Agency contains a unique and indispensable collection of more than 1,000 resources for activists and organizers including workshop tools, case studies, articles, and signposts to many other organizations.  

You can explore particular themes such as ‘strategy’, or build your own toolkit by collating and searching specific terms as a group. Highlights include the extensive People Power Manual.

The Change Agency also runs the ‘Community Organizing Fellowship’, plus their website carries lots of great guest content – such as this review by Amanda Tattersall of Rules for Revolutionaries, the book about organizing the Bernie Sanders campaign in the USA in 2016:

“Take the “Rule” – “the work is distributed, the plan is centralised.” This is an argument for highly coordinated campaigns. That makes total sense in an electoral context where you have one objective – a candidate’s win – over a whole nation. It makes no sense, however, when it comes to running the climate movement. Climate issues don’t operate at a single scale – they run from the neighbourhood, to the state, the nation, the global and to corporations– all have potential targets and there are thousands of potential, integrated campaign strategies. If you “centralised” climate strategy you would risk losing many of your leaders (at best) if not totally pissing them off.”
