About You

In this part of the application, we're looking for 3 things:
  • What experience you have in campaigning so far (evidence of some campaigning work taking place in the past and some involvement in campaigning or campaigning groups)

  • How you will benefit from what you can learn during this training (a personal interest in environmental justice, awareness of issues facing the environmental movement and what the movement seeks to address, and an idea of what you want to achieve)

  • What you might do with what you learn (an idea that the training will have a positive impact on you and your future campaigning, and what impact it will have)

Do I need to be an experienced campaigner?
Don't worry if you're just starting out learning how to campaign - you don't need lots of experience! You just need to show that you want to learn how to campaign and explain why.

What do you mean by campaigning?
If you need help in understanding what we mean by campaigning, read this great article which outlines our approach.

Please write at least 50 words per answer

In the past, we have offered:

  • Loan of equipment (such as chairs, footrests and laptops, plus computer accessories such as mice and monitors)
  • Data top-ups for phones or pre-paid wi-fi dongles
  • One-to-one and group tech intro and refresher sessions
  • Closed-captioning of online training sessions
  • Resources in large print and / or using appropriate fonts, colour contrast and backgrounds, as well as printed or digital copies of resources in advance of training sessions
