Common Cause Workshops

Want to dig a little deeper into changing how you communicate to change how people think? Interested in using values? Attending a Common Cause workshop or masterclass is a great way to deepen your understanding of evidence led communication and values, develop new skills and make new connections. We deliver introductory and masterclass sessions. In delivering these trainings we draw on the work of, and work closely with, the international Common Cause network. 

Introduction to Common Cause: values and frames that motivate change

In the introductory sessions we introduce the principles of evidence led-communication. We explore how values motivate people’s beliefs and connect us to issues that affect our collective well-being. We help you identify the best values based messages to change the discourse, and how as organisations and individuals we can work together to create a more just, sustainable and democratic world.
