Organising for Change

Organising for Change provides tools and concepts for social movements, and organizers and activists in movements. The aim of Organising for Change is to contribute to making our social movements more efficient and successful. Because fundamental social change is necessary, and this change will need to come from the social movements, from the grassroots, from below.

In this website you can find a growing selection of tools and exercises for the development of efficient strategies and tactics for campaigns and social movements. In addition, you can find articles on useful models of social movements, such as the Movement Action Plan.

This website is still work in progress. Lots of things are still missing, or will be changing during the course of the development of this website and its content. Please get in touch if you have any suggestions or comments.

Movement Life Line


The Movement Life Line enables participants to identify the rich history of their movement (or a movement chosen as example), and its successes. It can be empowering, as it shows the movement's contribution to it's successes, and additionally the group's involvement in the movement's successes.

The Movement Life Line can later serve as basis for identifying the 8 stages of successful movements (or some of them), and can be used for the development of strategic objectives depending on the stage the movement is in. It can also be used to analyse which of the different roles of activism were involved to what level at the different stages of the movement.
