SMK offer tips and solutions for people who are looking to get into campaigning, including how to build a team, make a plan, speak the truth, map your issues, build alliances and make tactics.
The Sheila McKechnie Foundation (SMK) is here to support individuals, groups and communities to have the skills and confidence to speak up and take effective action on issues that matter to them. We do this by connecting, informing and supporting campaigners. All our work is focused on empowering people to have a voice. The bulk of our work is focused on those who are new to campaigning, are marginalised, have few resources and cannot get the support they need elsewhere.
Free The Change is a bold but simple invitation to help you start or join a small “change-maker” support group where you live, work or play. It’s also a network linking similar groups across Scotland for wider connection, inspiration and skill-sharing. It is curated by Simon Bateson, Founder/Creative Director of Take One Action – in response to thousands of conversations we’ve been part of over the last decade. Conversations about what helps turn both well-meaning concern and mis-spent energy into sustainable, system-changing lives: lived for the common good.
People & Planet is the largest student network in Britain campaigning to end world poverty, defend human rights and protect the environment. We’re a student-led movement that empowers young people with the skills, confidence and knowledge they need to make change happen, at home and globally.
