Event description
This foundations training teaches the core philosophy and practice of community organizing.

About this Event

This foundations training is based on the philosophy and practices developed by the Industrial Areas Foundation in over 70 years of successful organising experience. These ideas are translated to an Canadian context to cover the very essentials of what organising is and how we implement it here in Calgary.

It is interactive, thoughtful and made for people with all levels of experience. Concepts worked through include ideas of power, our roles as public people and what strength looks like. As practical as it is theoretical, we teach the tools to start building public relationships and working through the organising cycle to solve problems in our communities.

Topics at the 2 Day Foundations training include:

Community Organising: based on the history and tradition of our religious, union and community organisations

Relational Organising: individual relational meetings, listening assemblies, research, negotiation and action

Strengthening our Organisations: building a culture that is relational, action oriented and reflective/learning

Using Relational Power in the public sphere to take collaborative action on common issues.

Partner organisations are encouraged to send individual leaders to participate. It is an important space for your leaders and members to connect with other organisations and to develop skills in Community Organising.

Organisations interested in exploring partnership of the Calgary Alliance are also encouraged to send individuals to participate in the Training and to get a feel for the coalition.
