How to run a local campaign

As sustainable food enterprises and independent businesses we are often faced with shocks – such as rent rises, or the risk of losing land or buildings – that threaten the future of our organisations. How do we plan and organise a campaign strategy to get what we need? How do you identify and influence your key target whether this is a local authority or private company and how do you build good relationships with key stakeholders in the longer term?

Join Kerry Rankine in this interactive and practical workshop that will give you the insights and tools to plan and run a campaign that harnesses the power of your local community.
