Is your New Year’s resolution to get more involved with campaigning for a better world?

2021 is going to be a big year for people and the planet – in Scotland there will be an election, recovery plans and the UN Climate Summit coming to Glasgow in November.

Do you want to get active?

We know that lots of people want to make a difference in their community and for the climate but sometimes don’t know where or how to start.

Would you like to see less cars outside the local school? A reduction in plastic waste? An end to North Sea oil and gas? Does your pension fund still invest in fossil fuel companies? Are you not sure, you just want to do something?

What does it involve?

This Introduction to Campaigning course is designed to support people who want to get involved, but aren’t sure how.

Covering everything from what a campaign actually is and how to choose an issue to work on, to the basics of how to organise a protest, this course will skill you up to get involved in the fight of our lives.

With the eyes of the world on Scotland’s climate action this year, we have a real opportunity to make progress towards building a better Scotland and a world that works for people and the planet.

This is the perfect time to get involved and start talking to your friends and neighbours about how you can come together to take action for real change.

Who is it for?

The course is free to attend and open to all. It will take place over 8 online workshops between now and May 2021. Just click Register on Workshop 1 below to get started.

If you have any questions about the course or accessibility needs, feel free to get in touch at activism [at] foe.scot
