Act Locally: Ideas and Advice

There are various ways to campaign and raise awareness of global issues in your area. Check out our activism guides for more ideas and our top tips for making sure your campaigning is effective. We can send you leaflets, action cards, badges and more!

Local activism guides

Our local activism guides are a great resource for anyone who would like to get more involved in global justice campaigns - there is always something you can do regardless of your personal circumstances, your job or lifestyle.

Student-specific activism guides

These guides are specifically designed for student groups, but contain information which others may find useful too.

If you are a student, remember that your Student Union is a useful resource - they are there to help you so approach them for support wherever possible. Our local activism guides (above) are widely applicable so check them out too for more ideas of how your student group can join War on Want's campaigns and help fundraise. 

If you are planning an activity, do let us know! We may be able to feature your event on our website, we may be able to provide a speaker and you can order free materials!

Email yan@waronwant.org to let us know how you get on with your event.
