Monday 26th October – Thursday 10th December 2020
Trust The People is a movement of community builders offering a new strategy to serve humanity through this health crisis and the climate crisis.
Join us for a six week course in which we outline our answer to the question: ‘How do we create enduring social change now to build connected, caring, resilient, and democratic communities?’
During the 6 week course, we will journey across 5 in-depth modules, reflecting on our internal worlds, exploring our experiences within our communities and the world at large, and finding ways to step into our power to shape a society we can be proud of.
We are the change. We are all we need.
- w/c 26.10 – Intro week: Democracy in Crisis…
- w/c 2.11 – Understand yourself, your identity and your biases
- w/c 9.11 – Develop your skills in working with others
- w/c 16.11 – Reach out to people in your community and build relationships rooted in trust
- w/c 23.11 – Facilitate Community Assemblies in which all voices can be heard
- w/c 30.11 – Community Organising – move into grassroots action!
- w/c 7.12 – Graduation ceremonies
Each week the main Module session will be Monday 6pm-8pm, repeated on Thursday 10am-12pm**
At the end of the course you will graduate as a Community Transformer! It doesn’t end there. You can become part of a support group or ‘Hive’, which will support you onwards in your journey of community transformation. You can also receive mentoring, and even become part of the TTP training team to pass on your skills and motivation to others.
We are partnered with the national Flatpack Democracy campaign (helping people to reclaim their councils away from party politics for the benefit of residents and the community) and the Climate Emergency Centres initiative (free and legal way of repurposing an unused building in your area for the community).
