Feedback form is now closed.
Power is evolving. In an increasingly networked world, how can social movements build decentralized power, and just as importantly, how do we defend it - and go on the offensive -  once we inevitably come into conflict with powerful forces who want to stop us? 

In this interactive session, we will explore together what it means for networks of power to battle each other, and how using decentralized network theory can offer activists a wider set of strategic possibilities than we may normally consider. 

Identify shared resources that social movements are using 
Establish a collective understanding of what is needed for a healthy network 
Shift network understanding of what “conflict” means in a networked world
Provide strategy and tactics to shift power across your network 
Clarity around the landscape that we share with our allies and our opponents 

Have a collective toolkit of shared resources
Have an understanding of what makes a healthy network 
Be able to assess the power of their network 
Be able to identify points of “defense” and “offense” across the spectrum of allies
