Networks are key to good communication – but we need training and support to make the very best of them
Seeds for Change is a network of social change trainers. For the past seven years it has been engaged in a programme of support to increase effectiveness and co-operation within the grassroots social change movement in the UK. Emphasis on training in campaign skills and group working skills is seen as vital in involving more and more people in taking action.
This project will deliver training and support to try to avert the worst impacts of climate change on our ecosystems. It will facilitate Training for Action Trainers workshops to expand the pool of people confident in sharing skills and experience in environmental action. It will focus on campaigning skills to enable groups and communities to work more strategically, non-violently and effectively in achieving action on climate change. Skills in co-operative group-work will be taught to enable groups to build strong and sustainable groups, to resolve problems and make inclusive decisions based on co-operation, rather than conflict.
