Sharing vs. shifting power

New perspectives on how our work impacts working and living realities in the Global South

This session will offer insight into a hot – and sometimes contentious – topic in the international development world: the tension between international data-driven multimedia fundraising campaigns for development in the Global South and smaller scale, locally-led campaigns employing more personal fundraising strategies. Participants will explore the pros and cons of each approach and what we can learn from the differences between them. How do we frame our key messages in fundraising and advocacy campaigns? What are the subtexts? And how do we do justice to often complex realities and communicate in ways that inspire people to join in?
