Video: a behind-the-scenes look at a successful grassroots campaign

We recently developed a local campaign to save a piece of Portugal’s natural beauty from private development. And it worked — in fact, it reached half its goals in only four weeks!

On May 12 we presented to DiEMers how we developed this project — what went well, and what didn’t. In case you missed it, check it out above.

This is a behind-the-scenes look at a successful campaign, and will hopefully give you ideas and inspiration for your own grassroots initiatives.

(The project was part of Campaign Accelerator, our incubator programme to boost grassroots activism. The next Campaign Accelerator round will be starting soon, once again open to all DiEM25 members).
