Action for Change is the essential introduction to activsim for students. Every year we host two days of intensive of workshops, talks and debate sessions at our London headquarters. And all for the cost of a £5 refundable deposit.

'Such a wonderful weekend! Great mix of education, action, reflection, discussion and practical tips!'
Delegate at last year's Action for Change

Booking is now closed for this year's Action for Change.

Is it for you?

This event is ideal if you are a member of a new Amnesty group or have recently joined your group's committee. Think of it as a 'one-stop-shop' for activism training - a kind of Amnesty bootcamp!

If you're a member of an Amnesty student group, this is your chance to quiz our experts and get the low-down on how to run great campaigns. We'll run sessions on all the elements of campaigning and equip you with invaluable skills - from how to secure media coverage, to how to make your MP really listen to what you've got to say.

  • Sharpen your campaigning skills at a range of interactive workshops
  • Hear what we're planning to work on in the coming year
  • Take part in a campaign action which you can replicate back on campus
  • Network with your STAN Committee rep and Amnesty groups from your area
