Cost will be as low as $10 per person (this is the rate for groups of 5 from smaller organizations, or independent activists). Funders may sponsor the course for their grantees.

Mobilisation Lab

Our staff have taken SMT’s excellent trainings over the past five years. Mastering the strategic use of digital tools is essential to advance social change online. SMT’s offerings are a much-needed and unique resource. And they are responsive and committed to meeting the needs of participants. We’re thrilled to partner on the new Global South track of their Digital Campaigning Certificate program, which is a need that we expressed and they acted on promptly. Thank you SMT!

Shelley Buckingham, Digital Communications Lead, Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID), Canada

SMT’s digital certificate training is brilliant – comprehensive. You may know one method really well but six months down the line it may not work anymore. It’s also great to have a global cohort of peers  to connect with for other perspectives.
