Event description

Description

Action for Change is Amnesty International UK’s annual training day for student society committee members. Designed to equip you will all the skills you’ll need to run effective and engaging student group on your campus, the event is a fantastic opportunity to meet and share ideas with other student activists, learn about our campaigns and skill up for the year ahead.

This year’s Action for Change programme is jam-packed full of inspiring talks and workshops, as well a chance for you to have one on one time with campaign experts from across Amensty.

We'll have sessions on;

  • How Amnesty works and it's structure
  • How to run an effective campaign
  • How to retain members throughout the year
  • Dealing with difficult conversations and self care
  • How to influence power via social media

We strongly recommend that at least one person who will be running your group during the 2019-2020 academic year attends Action for Change.

Travel bursaries are avaliable for up to 2 members of each student group, covering up to 50% of your travel. Please email james.farndon@amnesty.org.uk to discuss. This will be on a first come first serve basis.

Please note that societies will be responsible for booking their own accomodation if required. We recommend Dictionary Hostel https://thedictionaryhostel.com/en/
