Teaching the skills to lead winning campaigns

Citizens Society is the first of its kind in any university - modelling the principles of Citizens UK, home of community organising. Community organising is democracy in action: winning victories that change lives and transform communities. It's about turning normal citizens - and normal students - into leaders, and turn the world as it is into the world as it should be. We do this by developing an understanding of how power works - and how to bring diverse communities together around clear goals and well-researched strategies, to wield people power of their own to transform the world into a more just place. This is politics without parties, this is democracy in action.


How to Lead a Successful Campaign - workshop sessions

We believe in developing the leadership capacity of our mebmers so you can hold politicians and other decision-makers to account on the issues that matter to you. We are running training workshops throughout semester one.
