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.

Naming political assumptions


When defining objectives or goals and developing a strategy, awareness about the different lenses through which people view the world, and the underlying assumptions or belief systems, is important. Our assumptions and world views not only shape the way we see things – and what we see – but also what goals or objectives, and what strategy and tactics might be appropriate.
