Our Times: campaign activities for Venturers

 

 

Our Times is the new campaign from young people around Woodcraft Folk, who want to give other young people a platform to be heard on social and political issues including war. The aim is to enable young people to educate each other on the issues they care about, and enable wider society to hear and respect young people's views.

We've put together a range of activities to get your Venturer group thinking about society and what they care about most in it. Download the PDF below.

 

Campaign Planning & Approval Process

This page sets out a simple process for agreeing formal organisational support of third-party campaigns, with three variants – ideal, minimum and emergency. It is designed for situations when we wish to endorse campaigns or campaign events organised by others and encourage participation and support by our members.

2017 was a busy year for campaigning and it looks like 2018 will provide plenty of opportunities to make our voices heard on issues that matter to Woodcraft Folk. General Council has prepared a new resource to help members plan effective, inclusive campaigning activity and to clarify the process for Woodcraft Folk endorsing campaigns organised by others.
