A global movement for change

Oxfam is part of a global movement, campaigning for economic, gender and climate justice – for change that lasts. We believe, together, we can forge an equal future, with equal rights and equal opportunities, so that every one of us can thrive, not just survive.

Oxfam works in more than 90 countries, together with thousands of partners and allies. We support communities to build better lives for themselves, grow resilience and protect lives and livelihoods in times of crisis. Since we want lasting solutions, we fight the inequalities that keep people locked in poverty and injustice. We tackle not the symptoms but the systems, and we campaign for genuine, long-lasting change.

There are many other international, national and local organisations and social movements which you could add your voice to. There will be opportunities in the course to identify those which connect with your change issue and to join them.
