ICYMI - Building Powerful Coalitions

What does it take to build powerful coalitions between different groups with different interests and passions? The idea of working together sounds nice, but what makes a coalition work when the rubber hits the road. This is an episode of two very different but equally successful coalitions. The first talks to organisers in the coalition that delivered the BREXIT deal in the United Kingdom. The second tells the story of the grassroots leaders who build a coalition to stop gas fields being built across the Northern Rivers of NSW in Australia. Each story draws out crucial, transferable lessons about coalition building, drawn in part from our Host Amanda Tattersall’s book Power in Coalition (2010). There are further links to writing and training about coalition building on our website - www.changemakerspodcast.org (via story page).

ICYMI - Protesting Putin’s Russia

This is an episode we recorded in 2017 in Moscow, telling the long story behind the broad-based resistance movements that have exploded across Russia in support of Alexis Navaley. These leaders have mixed feelings about Navaley as a figure, but the story shows that even in an authoritarian state - people will stand up for their needs - even when they face threat and intimidation.
