You can learn about how to take your campaigning to the next level with Kirsty McNeill, a former advisor to Prime Minister Gordon Brown on communications and campaigning, there will be skill share workshops on film and YouTube plus a chance to learn more about Save the Children’s work responding to emergencies in Syria and the Philippines. Save the Children also want your help to plan ideas to get the next big campaign on newborns off to a brilliant start on social media.
Save the Children work very closely with bloggers, last year saw bloggers writing about the IF campaign, breastfeeding, nutrition and UK poverty. It saw them donning Christmas jumpers, raising money and spreading the word far and wide. In December groups of bloggers visited the Gruffalo at the wonderful Woolly Wonderland, customised Christmas jumpers with John Lewis and learned to knit mini decorations with Sue Stratford. In January Born to Read bloggers visited the House of Lords, met Lauren Child and spoke to MPs about how changing the story for the UK’s poorest children.
Be the first to hear about the next stage in the No Child Born to Die campaign, meet up with friends, brush up on your blogging skills and learn how to take your campaigning to the next level.
