Over 110 social change campaigners from nearly 40 countries around the world gathered at CampaignCon 2017 in Johannesburg, 7-9 November, to learn, share experiences and build the skills to grow movements and win bigger. How to transform couch activists into actual activists was one of the first things social change campaigners agreed they needed to solve. Diverse activists from South Africa to Singapore, led by a Global South majority, converged to unpack strategies, tactics, and tools they use today in roles ranging from technology leadership to mobilisation. As a discussion on the global state of campaigning unfolded, common themes crossed geographic and programmatic boundaries, giving insight into how practitioners all over the world are working.

What isn’t and could be done better? What’s missing entirely or still needed? Read what they found here.
