Community Campaigns take shape

Participants on the UpRising leadership programme developed their ideas for community campaigns during a learning session held on 24 September 2009.

UpRisers worked in groups to define the problem they hoped their community campaign would address. Using a problem definition tool they broke the wider issue into component parts. The exercise aimed to help participants focus their community campaigns and identify concrete achievable actions for their community campaigns. At the end of the session all the UpRisers came together in the main theatre at Oxford House to share their work.

Participants were also introduced to how to use one-to-one meetings to build relationships with individuals to increase their understanding of issues affecting their community and mobilise support for their community campaigns.
