Maun Valley Citizens is an alliance of 19 civil society institutions working in Mansfield, Ashfield and further afield to organise communities for the common good.
We believe Community Organising works. This training will unpack the argument for Community Organising and share some of the practical tools we use as an alliance to act together for change but also to strengthen the exisiting work of our institutions. Training includes sessions on negotiation, power analysis, understanding self-interest, the use of 121 meetings, developing a culture of shared action and leadership.
This course will run over two full days, with lunch and light refresments provided on both. Attending both parts of the course is compulsory as the content builds throughout each session. This course is particulalry targetted at those in both formal and informal leadership roles in their institutions or those keen to be active within a Citizens team and will be relevant for those with an experience of active involvement in Citizens or those who are new to the organisation.
If you have any questions and would like to know if this course would be right for you please speak to your organisational leader responsible for work with Maun Valley Citizens or contact our Organiser Hugh Murdoch on firstname.lastname@example.org
