Digital mobilisation

Digital mobilisation

The revolution will (not) be digitised: What’s next for digital mobilisation?

“Many small people, who in many small places do many small things, can alter the face of the world.”

A lot has changed since the 90s, but the power of people to create change when they come together is truer than ever. Movements like #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, and School Strike for Climate have shown how powerful digital can be when it’s used to mobilise supporters and create change. Many charities have been inspired to replicate this success, but have found its not as easy as it looks.

If you’re interested in bringing the spirit of digital mobilisation to your organisation, or you’ve already tried but hit walls along the way, this session that will give you the inspiration to take the fight onward as well as some tools and tips to overcome internal barriers.

You will explore examples of best-in-class digital mobilisation, go on a deep-dive into why your organisation should be testing it as an approach, and learn how to deal with some common misconceptions. Voices will be brought together from around the conference to ask and answer what’s coming in the world of mobilisation – digital and beyond. How should you respond to changes in social media channels? Where can you reach new audiences? And how can you harness the awesome potential of digital to drive your organisation forward in the years ahead?
