Science of Social Change

Research shows that change takes place in group discussions. It also shows that if enough of us adopt a change or engage in an activity, it catches on. We have collective strength when we work together, adopting and advocating for the changes we need to see!

In the KTCCs, we like to share this message of hope, including a few stories and facts about the power of collective action to make positive change. See pages 10-11 of the presenter slides in the KTCC Toolkit below. They are supported by pgs. 15-18 in the facilitator guide.
