In the first of these online events, we explore Activism.
Activism is defined as ‘the policy or action of using vigorous campaigning to bring about political or social change.’ But before the policy, action or vigorous campaigning begins, we need first to define what political or social change we want to make.
Many of us have spent lockdown imagining the type of world we want to take part in when this is all over and there are likely issues, large and small, that we care deeply about that this period has laid bare. But how do we turn these things into action? How do we go from caring to action, policy and vigorous campaigning?
Join us for a chat, and let’s see if together we can get us all started…

17.25 – 17.35 Daianna Karaian (Today Do This) presentation – Activism on the level of the individual: how can we turn our ideas into actions?
