Developing Citizen Leadership

This workshop will equip you with strategies to navigate the challenges of citizen leadership such as holding dual roles in your community.

  • You will develop an understanding and narrative of why Citizen Leaders are so vital to making change happen, and increase personal power to hold yourself through challenges.
  • ‘Chat for change’ will equip you to use the stuff we talk about over a cuppa to make a difference.
  • You will learn how to identify what ‘data’ really looks like on the ground, build a theory and test it.
  • You will increase your understanding and confidence to collect and use data in a community context.
