On this course you will explore and develop your understanding of power, which is what drives community organising: what power means and how power can be built in communities to overcome social injustice and create change.
Using fun and thought-provoking activities, and thinking about our own lives, we will think about the different types and effect of power and look at the ways that people can build power together through community organising.
During this course you will explore:
- your personal power and ability to act
- how power is exercised in society
- what it means to organise for change
- how to begin to pinpoint the causes of social injustice
- how to build power with others through community organising
