At this years' annual AASHE conference, CoFED will be co-presenting with The Real Food Challenge:
All Projects are Personal: Making Change by Building Relationships
Those of us inspired by campus sustainability have ideas for how to make change but sometimes lack the knack for moving an initiative forward with others. People respond to ideas and are likely to become invested in projects led by people that they know and trust. Relationships are among the most valuable means for making change.
This workshop teaches the fundamentals of effective organizing for building relationships to turn your ideas into self-propelled initiatives. Using examples from Real Food Challenge campaigns to get more sustainable food on campus and CoFED campaigns to create student-led food co-ops, this workshop focuses on how to identify and connect with people from the campus or broader community who may become key partners or allies.
Hope to see you there!
