Movement Ecology

Social movements are ecosystems. They grow stronger and more resilient through connectedness and diversity. We help activists and organisations act on this insight.

About us

We are a Movement Ecology Collective

We believe that in order to achieve system change, changemakers across the UK need to build collective power. We work within and across movements to facilitate exchange of ideas, strategic coordination, and practical collaboration. We open up a space for reflection and learning on the individual, organisational and movement level.

Far from traditional alliances with formal agreements, we aim to strengthen and support a network of changemakers so that we become a well-connected, powerful and radical force that can successfully challenge hegemonic power structures.

We provide a range of offerings, including open courses, bespoke workshops, multi-day gatherings, facilitated discussions, meet-ups, consultation and movement mapping commissions.

Please get in touch to discuss how we can help you or your group!

We are Linda, Lucas and Wolfgang. We each have a wealth of experience as facilitators, trainers and activists, designing and leading trainings, workshops, strategy meetings, people’s assemblies and long-running group processes.

Our sliding scale fees are inspired by the Sky Larks Collective. Our work on movement ecology is inspired by the Ulex Project and informed by the work of the Ayni Institute. For more background, have a look at the resources we use in our course.
