Building Change Trust

The Civic Activism Toolkit is an online directory of 29 innovative tools and approaches for civic activism from around the world. The toolkit is intended for use by civil society in Northern Ireland and beyond. The website also includes case studies and top tips for putting civic engagement into practice.

National, Local, Regional
Diversity, Inclusion, Responsiveness
Development, Exploration, Implementation, Monitorization & Evaluation, Dissemination

The tools are clustered in 6 groups: budget tools, debate tools, policy tools, information tools, oversight tools and public service tools. For each tool, the toolkit answers the following questions: In which situations is it used? Who is it aimed at? How is it used? Who has used it? Where can users find more information?

Though the toolkit was developed specifically for Northern Ireland, most of the resources and methods can be applied in very different contexts. However, its focus is on public engagement in the community/society, not on RRI or research/science.
