Influencing for change
This section provides basic guidance about campaigning and offers practical tools and links to additional resources to develop a campaign. Campaigning helps you to change something, which would otherwise be outside of your power alone. So you campaign to persuade those with the power to make the change.
Campaigning is all about:
- the challenge;
- the solution;
- the people who have the power to make the desired change; and
- seeking to influence those people.
