What is Campaign Academy?

Campaign Academy is a year-long programme that aims to equip students with the skills to run a campaign in their school or local area. During the programme, students learn vital skills needed to become an effective campaigner and are empowered to take local action on important global issues. 

The programme consists of four workshops held across different venues throughout the year culminating in an 'Agents of Change' celebration event in March 2019. Campaign Academy is suitable for transition year students and above, and each school can register up to seven students.
