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.
People & Planet is the largest student network in Britain campaigning to end world poverty, defend human rights and protect the environment. They’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.
