We all want to change the world and there are loads of brilliant ideas out there about how that can be achieved. However, substantial, meaningful change based on consensus decision making takes a bit of organisation and effort. The resources to achieve this are out there… Seeds For Change have, over the years, acquired a lot of experience in advising and mentoring grassroots projects. This is just a small taster of what they can offer and we would recommend these to any of the projects we have and are currently working with:

Skill up, co-operate, take action!
Whether you are a local community group or a national campaign network, a co-operative or a charity – we can support you to become more strategic, inclusive and sustainable in what you do. We work with groups and organisations fighting to defend their communities, stopping environmental devastation and creating socially just and sustainable alternatives.
We offer training, meeting facilitation and online resources on collective organising and consensus decision making, developing your strategy, campaign and action skills, setting up groups and co-ops, co-operative governance and training for trainers.
