Overview

Learn what drives positive social change in your role as a changemaker

If we want to make lasting social and political change we must understand power dynamics, systems and influencing strategies that can shift the status quo. This course will help you understand the context of the issues you’re passionate about and your existing sources of power and influence.

You’ll be guided by examples of successful international movements and community action, and connect with changemakers worldwide. Ultimately, you’ll finish this course with the skills you need to spot and act upon opportunities, and contribute to the change you want to see in your community and the world.

This course is aimed at activists and change agents with a personal or professional interest in how change happens, and who want to be more effective at delivering change for good.

I really loved this course. Very easy to navigate and the content is outlined in a really easy to understand way. Clear language and guidance. I think it's easy to think change just happens, this course really made me think differently about how to approach my change projects. Love the communities on there too, other students are actually talking to each other and debating techniques, a real asset to the course. Great job!

Excellent course with a great mix of thought providing articles, practical tools and discussion. Very rich material with examples from active change makers. Allows you to use tools on a change of your own and get others to review it.
