December 20 - December 21
21 Jan 2020 at 08:30 – 25 Jan 2020 at 18:00, join us in Bangok for a unique opportunity to delve into the theory and practice of Community Organising!
Details: Most social change initiatives without serious people’s participation do not last. Community organizing for empowerment is a fine art with people participation as a core value. Although it takes time and the process is complicated, it warrants serious attention from community change leaders as the outcome is more likely to sustain. Participants will visit some success stories of communities that have gone through this process and learn about how they moved from community organizing around single issues, to a social movement for structural change. We will review how they have arrived at the present point, linking the practices and theories behind them and pondering their possibilities for success and failure in the future.
