Campaign Design Training

Online

In 2021 Animal Rebellion is entering into an exciting new phase with campaigns popping up left, right and centre. However, it can sometimes seem a little daunting to start a campaign in your area if its not something you've done before. This training will go over the basics of how to plan and implement a successful campaign. It will touch on campaign theory as well as going into examples of effective campaigns and how they won. This training is great for those working on the plant-based councils campaign or for anyone who wants to start to see real change in their area towards a better world.

People’s Assembly

Online

"People’s Assemblies are a way for a group of people to discuss issues or make decisions collectively, where all voices are heard and valued equally and no one person or group are able to dominate the process. People’s Assemblies play a vital role in our decision making process, and even more so during the rebellion where we will need to hold impromptu assemblies depending on the situations we encounter. In this assembly, we will be discussing the following question - 'How do we best incorporate alternative & non-hierarchical systems into our daily lives?'"
