MOVEMENT OF MOVEMENTS
We know that people-powered community action depends on human connection and breaking down silos between different groups that share the same goals.
Our network helps to bring together a range of people from organisations and projects focused on community building, democracy and the climate emergency, to share resources, hold brave conversations and provide invaluable support and opportunities to budding activists looking for somewhere to put their energies.
There are already hundreds of groups trying and testing new models - from food growing networks, to restorative justice, to citizens assemblies. So rather than reinventing the wheel we want to act as a ‘hub’ that can link people together and support a ‘movement of movements'.
We have worked with a range of organisations around the UK, some of which have presented during our course to inspire participants with their incredible work.
The organisations we have worked with include Bannister House Solar / Repowering London, CamLETS, Climate Emergency Centres, DEG Wales, Devon Doughnut Collective, Doughnut Cambridge, Economy for the Common Good, Ella Baker School of Organising, Incredible Edible, Sharewear Clothing Scheme, Take the Jump, Talk Shop, TH!NK FC, Transition Bath, Transition Edinburgh, Safe Landing, Eden Project Communities, I Have a Voice and RSPB.
Please see the map that lists some of our collaborators to help visualize the network.
How to use the map:
Zoom out to see the map in full, or in to view individual profiles. If you click on the circles you can see the full profile (it will appear underneath).
Scroll down the profile for more information about location, contact details, website etc.
If you want to filter by one of the fields in a profile, click on the filter icon (the three lines on the right hand side of the map), this will give you different options. You can colour or rearrange the connections to highlight different fields. E.g. if you click ‘connect by’ and select ‘nearest town/city’ the map will rearrange itself according to people’s location.
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you are part of an organisation or project involved in community building or participative democracy, please get in touch! We hold a regular MoM meet up to share updates from different groups and talk openly about the challenges we face.
Drop us a line to be kept informed.
