How to build communities and influence people (2 day masterclass)
Date: 19th Feb 2015 (10:00) to 20th Feb 2015 (16:00)
Venue: 50 George Square, G.02 (Central Area) – The University of Edinburgh
Neil Jameson, Chief Executive of Citizens UK with over 25 years’ experience as a community organiser and Hugh Murdoch, EUSA President 2013-14 who now works as a community organiser in Nottingham, will deliver this two-day masterclass covering the theory and practice of community organising as well as practical lessons in self-interest, building teams and the craft of relational individual meetings.
Citizens UK is a civil society alliance, which brings together schools, trade unions, churches, mosques university departments and other community groups to build powerful alliances that allow citizens to play an active role in politics and public life.
Citizens UK has experience of training leaders from across civil society and this course will have relevance to many members of the university community. It will be particularly fitting for students who want to develop as leaders in societies and their studies, and for staff who would like to develop a more relational approach to being a tutor, Personal Tutor, researcher and colleague/manager. This is a unique opportunity to learn from the people who are behind the Living Wage campaign (amongst other things); their two-day training courses normally cost £400 – here you will get it for free! Teas coffees and lunch will be provided.
