New CANVAS Publication:
Working With Activists

This CANVAS publication aims to teach leaders to inspire and work with what was OTPOR’s biggest resource – young, motivated people. Leaders will learn how to increase activist numbers and how to constantly teach them new skills.

From the recruitment of new activists, through an introductory conversation, up to the actual trainings: this publication covers it all. Using the experiences gained during the Serbian struggle for a democratic transformation almost two decades ago, this handbook combines theory with practical examples, for organizers to easily adapt the lessons to their specific movements: fighting for sustainable change!

In both English and Serbian language.
