NEON Movement Building Webinars

series. You can check out our past webinars here.

Series Two

Online Facilitation 101 | Late Summer
Thursday 20th August, 11am-1pm and Friday 28th August, 11am-1pm (Same session at different times)

We are in a moment that requires us to work out best ways that we still can come together, share ideas, learn from each other and make the best of the challenges we’re facing. Holding space online, be that for a training or facilitating meetings is one way of doing this, but how can we make these spaces fun, engaging, productive and safe? This webinar will give you a crash course in some of the tools you can use, how to prepare for a session and some ideas for how to make it engaging. Please note that this is the same training from Series 1.

Video coming soon.

Taking Care of Ourselves during Covid-19
Tuesday 23rd June, 4.30-6pm

In this workshop, we will explore the impact that Covid-19 has had on our wellbeing and mental health, both as individuals and in our communities. We will look at the ways in which coronavirus is contributing to activist burnout, and the unique challenges we face looking after ourselves in these times. This is all in the hope that we leave with clearer knowledge and plans about how we can take care of ourselves while organising during the pandemic. Facilitated by Yas Necati.

Introduction to Fundraising

Do you have a specific project or activity you want to develop? Want to learn more about different funding sources? Need help on how to write proposals or funding application forms?

You will learn about different types and sources of funding available, the key stages in making applications for funding, and elementary skills required for writing proposals.
