Tooling Up to Double Down: How to Harness People Power

About Tooling Up to Double Down: How to Harness People Power

Be inspired by those who have faced challenges yet successfully campaigned for positive change – and find your own route into action.

Actively seeking change can take many forms – and it can be fun, sustainable and hugely rewarding.

Join us for a day of connection, inspiration and skills building, from grassroots mobilising to political lobbying.

Combining panel sessions with hands-on workshops, this inclusive and welcoming event will offer opportunities to meet other campaigners, get to grips with the building blocks of developing an effective campaign and gain the confidence and encouragement to make a real difference.

Tea, coffee and a light lunch will be served!

Delivered in partnership with Christian Aid and Oxfam Scotland

Part of Take One Action Film Festival 2019, 18th - 29th September
