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
