About the Organisation

AktivAsia are activist educators and facilitators passionate about activist learning who facilitate training, education, research and organising to catalyse powerful people movements. If we are going to win campaigns for justice and rights, we need sharp strategies and increased participation in our campaigns. We need to bring more groups of diverse people, who withdraw their consent and cooperation from ‘business as usual’, into social change work. And if social change organisations are going to thrive, then education and training needs to be at the heart of the journey. Ongoing dynamic learning is core to social movements becoming bigger, smarter and stronger.
