Coordinated and Collective Action Resources

Collective Action

One of the features that makes the Acting Action Initiative unique is its focus on inspiring and facilitating collective action. While acting together we can achieve greater impact than acting alone, it is not easy and requires a different set of skills and resources than we typically employ within our individual organizations. Based on feedback at the work group meetings and the first convening, there is both a great deal of motivation to act in concert with one another as well as a healthy skepticism about how that will be achieved. To assist the group in thinking about working together in a different way MarinSpace has compiled some resources on collective impact. Click on “Collective Impact” in the tag list on the right to see these resources.
