CampaignCon is an annual global skill-sharing event where activists, technologists, organisations and social movements share ideas, co-create and hone good practices through participatory exploration of modern campaigning theory and practice.
After co-creating the inaugural convening in 2016, Aspiration partnered with Mobilisation Lab, the global innovation, training and research hub for changemakers, along with an amazing range of co-convenors and community partners, to organize the 2017 event.
Co-convenors included Care2, Civicus, Four Paws, Greenpeace, Innovation for Change Africa, MobLab, Mozilla, Oxfam, Purpose, Rhize, and TechSoup.
At CampaignCon 2017, 125 participants explored how to build a more nimble, responsive civil society that can mobilise and campaign more effectively in the digital era, in the face of growing authoritarianism, shrinking civic space and other threats.
The event included three days of hands-on skill- and experience-sharing, focused on learning from one another to build capacity, foster innovation and further strengthen a global network that would continue collaborating following the event.
