Introduction to Community Organising

Community organisers reach out and listen to people, then connect and motivate them to build their collective power.  In this course, you will start to explore how people come together so that they can understand and take action on their concerns to build community and overcome social injustice.

You will learn about:

  • what community organising is
  • the importance of listening to build relationships and explore issues
  • power in communities and why it matters
  • what motivates people to act
  • how to take your next steps in community organising
