Robin Good: The Collective Action Toolkit is a downloadable PDF guide, that has been designed to help individuals living in third world communities, where it is much more difficult to form spontaneous groups that tackle specific problems, to learn techniques and methods that can aid them to get together and take action on specific issues.
"Want to figure out a way to help people in your community eat healthier? Have an idea for a small business?"
"This 72-page booklet that seeks to develop a universal framework for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to tackle big problems in their communities.
Developed over the past year, the CAT contains nary a mention of design (or brainstorming). Instead, it relies on a simple vocabulary to describe skills like building a team, carrying out research, and developing solutions."
The CAT manual provides a number of illustrated templates, examples and tips to get any collaborative action idea off the ground.
