Engaging with Power and Difference in Collaborative Community Organising
The course offers an approach to community engagement that puts connection first, builds relationships and understanding of the lived experiences of community members, and develops collaborative projects/initiatives based upon the different lived experiences and needs of the wider community, bringing together a social justice focus alongside an environmental focus.

The course aims to support you to deepen your awareness and understanding of the lived experiences of a greater diversity of people in your local communities; to understand how you and your Transition group can speak more directly to their immediate needs.
