Why start with power?
Because it's our ability to shape the future. Inequality, discrimination, even the climate crisis - these are the results of unequal power relations in society. But people and communities have the ability to change those conditions, because power is within all of us, and we can flex it like a muscle. When communities come together to define the problems we face and the solutions we want, we can build our people-power through collective action.
In this module, you will learn:
- Theories behind what power is, who has it, and what people-powered change means
- Stories of people building people-power in their communities
- Key lessons and reflection exercises to help you build people-power in your own community
