Overview

Welcome to level 3 of our activist development series. In these modules you will start learning more advanced activist skills. While these are available for everyone, we recommend that they are for activists that want to deepen their involvement. If you are someone involved with planning and coordinating activism activities, or wants to be, then these are for you. These are skills you will need to learn in order to increase your impact for human rights justice.
 
We have designed these modules to learn at your own pace and in the order of your choosing. Each module contains learning activities that you can do at any time. These are to help you with retaining knowledge and to put these skills into practice. You can also download workshops with speakers notes if you want to run your own training sessions. These have also been designed so you can take elements of different workshops and paste them together to tailor a session for a particular audience.
 
There will be updates to this page with new modules and resources over time. So make sure to keep checking for updates. If you haven’t checked out our level 2 modules on fundamental activist skills, then maybe start there first. If you have questions please get in touch with us at communityorganising@amnesty.org.au.
