Description: Great expectations without the ability to sustain a movement will not produce tangible change. Most successful movements—those that can bring about comprehensible and tangible social and political change through focused efforts—have been shown to have a capacity to sustain mass participation, often over a number of years. The question: What are some of the skills, approaches, understanding, and practices that support movement resilience and success? In this session, we will throw light on the remarkably important challenge of sustaining a mobilization. The session’s organizers will share some firsthand insights, and include a small-group exercise to elicit knowledge from the experiences of participants.
