Based on the research collated and the ideas and experiences generated by the Smart CSOs Lab, our recent publication Re.imagining Activism - A Practical Guide for the Great Transition is a practical tool for activists and social change leaders. It provides guidance and support to activists who want to make a meaningful contribution to this deeper change. Re.imagining Activism provides practical advice and questions to ask ourselves when we want to change organisations, campaigns or become active on system change in another way. You can download a pdf copy of the guide here.
Re.imagining our strategies: How can we practically go about moving from mainstream activism to systemic activism? What are the roles of systemic activism that my organisation or network can take on?
Re.imagining our organisations: What needs to change in my organisations to become fit for the Great Transition? How can I initiate systemic change in my organisation?
Re.imagining ourselves as activists: How can we personally transcend our current paradigms and think differently as activists?
Re.imagining funding: If I am a grant maker, how can my organisation become a systemic funder?
For most civil society organisations and actvist networks that are fighting for justice and and a more sustainable world questioning the underlying economic model is not a core issue in their campaigns and projects. Our short movie is intended to change this by starting a public conversation on the role of markets and money in our society. Check out www.the-numbers.org
