We will be joining the sessions 7 – 9pm every Thursday on this zoom link: COMING SOON
Over the next six weeks, we will be joining the Organizing for Power training together as Medact and Nurses United to learn and practice skills to bring into our campaigning for health justice, including:
- ? Campaign strategy
- ? Identifying and recruiting new people
- ? Persuasive conversation techniques
- ? Real life examples of health workers winning demands
What will the training cover?
We will cover key skills and explore tools together to support our campaigning. In general, each week there will be some time spent in a plenary session and then some time spent in breakout discussions. In weeks 2 and 3, these will be with other participants across the world and in weeks 4 and 5, we will be in breakout groups as Medact and Nurses United.
This is a summary of the training outline:
|Week 1: 12th May||Introduction, Core Concepts & Leadership Identification||Plenary session|
|Week 2: 19th May||Semantics and the words we choose||Main plenary and cross-organisation breakout groups|
|Week 3: 26th May||6 Step-Structured Organizing Conversations, Part 1||Main plenary and cross-organisation breakout groups|
|Week 4: 2nd June||6 Step-Structured Organizing Conversations, Part 2||Main plenary and breakout groups as Medact and Nurses United|
|Week 5: 9th June||Charting and Structure Tests, Part 1||Main plenary and breakout groups as Medact and Nurses United.|
|Week 6: 16th June||Charting and Structure Tests, Part 2||Plenary|
Every week, there is a short campaign practice to do before the following session with the aim to do these together within our groups. We will create a 30-minute check in time each week as a way to come together and reflect on the campaign practice.
How will we keep in touch?
Each week, we will send an update via email & WhatsApp with:
- A brief summary of what was covered in that week’s session
- What’s coming up in the following week, including the campaign practice
The WhatsApp group will also be a space to keep in touch in between sessions and share reflections on what we are learning collectively.
