About Campaign Incubator

Campaign Incubator (CI) was first launched in 2019 with the goal of supporting campaigners to accelerate change. The program helps to seek answers to questions such as ‘How do we create a change in our lives?’, ‘How do I begin to imagine a campaign?’, ‘How do I inspire and encourage my community to join me in this journey?’, ‘Do my people and I have resources I have not explored yet?’, ‘How can I bring more resources, build and sustain meaningful and resourceful relationships that will help me achieve my goal?’

Campaign Incubator 2024 aims to strengthen the community of young, passionate campaigners to build youth feminist leadership that can influence the landscape of organizing and changemaking in the country. The program is inviting young changemakers/campaigners from diverse identities and marginalised communities to an online, immersive learning and practice space to run people-powered campaigns successfully
