This course is designed to provide you with an analytic framework for understanding the dynamics of social change and the practical tools for starting change initiatives. Through an interdisciplinary approach, our goal is to connect theoretical accounts of social transformation with the applied skills of strategic analysis, project planning and effective communication. Across the globe people are organising on an unprecedented scale to contest political power and take action on pressing social issues. The focus of this course is on the role individuals can play in social change through community organising, social movements and NGOs. It is intended for students seeking to develop practical strategies to create meaningful change in their communities.
