Learn how to run successful campaigns for a greener, fairer and more equal world

So many people want to change things, but they don't know how to do it. They've got the passion and drive, they can imagine things being different, but don't have the skills or confidence to know where to start. That's where Campaign Bootcamp comes in. We provide training and support to people at the early stages of becoming campaigners so that they can turn their dreams for a better world into a reality.

Applications are currently open - but there's not long left to apply! The deadline is Tuesday 7 April 2015 at 9am (GMT). All the info you need to apply is here: www.campaignbootcamp.org/apply - and you can email hello@campaignbootcamp.org if you have any questions at all.

Bootcamp starts with a one week intensive training - the next one is 7th-12th June - and that's followed up with mentoring, community support and further training. The learning is hands on and practical, so regardless of how much experience you have you'll get a lot out of it. The training is delivered by expert campaigners with amazing experience and insight to share. For many who come on the training, getting to meet the other Bootcampers and becoming a part of a community of likeminded people who want to change things is one of the best parts of the experience.

Bootcampers come from a range of backgrounds - from dedicated volunteers, local campaigners and grassroots activists - to people working in the NGO sector who want to up their skills. People come from all parts of the UK, from different cultures and educational backgrounds. We actively welcome applications from people who are from historically marginalised identities such as disabled people, black and minority ethnicities, refugees, women and LGBT campaigners.

If you're worried about the course fee, don't be! We have LOADS of scholarships available, and we work with everyone individually to ensure they can attend if they're successful.

So if you're passionate about social change, and you want to learn how to campaign to create a greener, fairer and more equal world then give it a go! Get your application in before Tuesday, go here to fill in your application form now: www.campaignbootcamp.org/apply

The event will be held at Debden House by Epping Forest in Greater London.
