Our Times: campaign activities for Venturers

 

 

Our Times is the new campaign from young people around Woodcraft Folk, who want to give other young people a platform to be heard on social and political issues including war. The aim is to enable young people to educate each other on the issues they care about, and enable wider society to hear and respect young people's views.

We've put together a range of activities to get your Venturer group thinking about society and what they care about most in it. Download the PDF below.

Planning and supporting effective campaigning - new resource

Wednesday, 10 January 2018

2017 was a busy year for campaigning and it looks like 2018 will provide plenty of opportunities to make our voices heard on issues that matter to Woodcraft Folk. General Council has prepared a new resource to help members plan effective, inclusive campaigning activity and to clarify the process for Woodcraft Folk endorsing campaigns organised by others. 

You can view the resource or download a PDF version at https://woodcraft.org.uk/resources/campaign-planning-approval-process

Campaign Planning & Approval Process

This page sets out a simple process for agreeing formal organisational support of third-party campaigns, with three variants – ideal, minimum and emergency. It is designed for situations when we wish to endorse campaigns or campaign events organised by others and encourage participation and support by our members.

If we are speaking on behalf of the thousands of children and young people who are members of Woodcraft Folk we must ensure that we follow three principles:

Western Sahara Study Visit - 28 Dec 2013 to 4 Jan 2014

Thursday, 24 October 2013

Those of you who attended Annual Gathering in April will remember the harrowing update on the situation of the Western Saharawi refugees and the emergency motion we passed in solidarity with our sister organisation USJARIO. We were pleased to be able to host a representative from USJARIO at the IFM congress in Manchester in June and are honoured to have been invited to send a delegation to their congress, which will be held in the refugee camps in Tindouf, southern Algeria at the turn of the year.
