**The Movement Building Canvas Master Class for Organisations and Institutions**
If you engage with existing social movements, or aspire to spark, support or sustain a social movement from within your organisation, you’ll recognise the challenges of mobilising and organising individuals and organisations to create, speak and act together. You'll also understand the impact you can have when you think big about social change.
The Movement Building Canvas is a practical framework to help you build movements for maximum impact. Tested with NGOs, voluntary organisations and start-ups, it can be used at any time to explore movement building ideas and develop practical plans.
This is an introductory session to the Canvas for organisations and institutions to enable you to take it away and use it by yourself, with your team, organisation, stakeholders and supporters.
- understand how to explore founding principles of movements - the purpose, experiences and values that movement members share;
- know how to plot out what happens once people join movements - how they will engage, what kind of actions they will take and how they will get the recognition they deserve;
- be ready to explore how to organise, communicate and connect with movements, and identify the infrastructure and resources that movements need to get going and stay moving;
- leave with your own, personal Canvas to continue developing.
The session will give you a opportunity to share experiences and test out ideas with other movement builders in a supportive environment.
The session will be facilitated by the creator of the Movement Building Canvas, Esther Foreman, who has over 15 years' experience building and leading movements for change across a range of organisations and causes.
