Introduction to Activism and Advocacy

To make an impact in global issues, you need to speak English.  This free course will give you an introduction into the world of English specifically for activists and advocates.

What's the course about?

There are 1.5 billion English speakers in the world today.  That’s 20 per cent of the world’s population!  If you can communicate your message in both your mother tongue and English – imagine how many more people you can reach.

Think about the impact that Greta Thunberg has had.  What if she didn’t speak English? Could she have inspired millions to join her on her Fridays for Future school strikes?  Would she have been able to address members of the UN, the US Congress, or the press?  But it’s not enough to just speak a language, you have to do it in a way that makes people want to listen, understand, and want to do something.  This course will help you do this.
