NEW CANVAS PUBLICATION - Working With Activists

This CANVAS-publication aims to teach organizers to activate and work with what once was OTPOR’s biggest resource – young and motivated people. This work will teach organizers how to increase the number of activists and how to constantly teach them new skills.

From the recruitment of new activists, through an introductory conversation, up to the actual trainigs: this work covers it all. Using the experiences gained in the Serbian struggle for a democratic transformation almost two decades ago, this handbook combines theory with practicle examples, for organisers to easily adapt the manual in their daily practice: fighting for sustainable change!

In both English and Serbian language.
