We all campaign on the basis of theories about how change will happen, whether these are explicit or just our standard operating assumptions. This training will focus on how we make the implicit explicit so we can organize and campaign for change more effectively. Corelab will use its original research on theories of change in campaigns to stimulate discussion about what theories of change are, and what implications they have for how we campaign. Secondly, participants will make their own theories of change explicit by identifying assumptions and preconditions for change. Participants can work individually or with others to build a theory of change for a current or future campaign.
