Step into the Action: Groundwork For Change

Explore and deepen your power to make a positive difference.

15 September 2018, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Melting Pot, 5 Rose Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2PR
, ,
Region/Country Focus
| Free – £8


Two workshops to explore and deepen your power to make a positive difference. Whatever your cause or starting point, you will be welcome.


SAT 15 SEPT | 10:00 – 15:00

Having a basic grasp of the inner and outer “ecology” of our change-making offers an essential starting point (and a routine health check) for our aspirations to make a difference in the world. We’ll explore: how change happens; what motivates and sustains; communication and power, and systems thinking.



SUN 23 SEPT | 10:00 – 15:00

Building on the groundwork, this workshop will help you map the issues you care about; create and see past conflict; work out where your biggest influence might be; harness social change life-cycles and devise effective strategies and stories to support the change you want to create.


Please book your space on either or both workshops in advance. This registration fee covers the cost of materials and lunch on the day. We don’t want this fee to be a barrier to taking part, if you would struggle to afford the ticket price please book the free option.

Hosted by Simon Bateson, founder of Take One Action & Free The Change.
