Making Moves online course

This seven-week online course provides conservationists with the critical skills and tools needed to design a comprehensive communication & outreach plan that motivates people to take action.

Through the weekly lessons and worksheets, we clarify what we’re asking audiences to do, dive into the many reasons why people will or won’t take action, and identify practical & creative strategies for motivating change.

The next course dates are October 10 – November 21, 2019. Registration is now open!

This course is for you, if…

» You’ve ever felt frustrated that your current outreach efforts weren’t producing the desired results: “they’re still doing the things we’re telling them not to do!!!”

» You’re trying to inspire new conservation behaviors in your community or get people to take action for a cause, but aren’t sure where to start.

» You’ve felt like your messages were only reaching the “already converted” and you need more people to get on board.

» You’ve made great progress but need to keep the momentum going and aren’t sure how to reach the next level.

» You’re interested in building your own capacity as a behavior change communicator.

If any part of your work is asking people to get more engaged in conservation activities – whether it’s donating, joining, advocating or changing their own behaviors – then this course will equip you with the skills, insights and processes you need to create powerful conservation movements.

Meet the trainer

I’ve been training non-profit organizations and local governments to use behavior change marketing in their conservation programs for over 10 years. Trainees have come from all over the world and have successfully applied these approaches to complex environmental challenges.

I’m passionate about the need to apply behavioral insights and effective communication strategies towards our shared goal of protecting this planet. And I’m excited to bring this live online workshop to you!

Brooke is an excellent trainer and highly capable facilitator who creates a positive, stimulating training atmosphere. Her experience in commercial marketing and behaviour change for conservation NGOs is clearly evident.

Brooke’s understanding of current science and business trends opened up new ways of thinking about what we have to market, who we should be marketing to, and how to reach them.

Brooke’s 3-day course had great balance between lecture, exercises, and group work. She is at home in front of the room and creates a space where participants are actively engaged.

Christina Imrich

This was one of the clearest, most direct webinars that I have attended. Brooke Tully did a fantastic job. Her slides were as easy to understand and follow as her talking points.

Brooke has a unique ability to think conceptually and strategically, but not in a way that is divorced from real-world reality.
