What we do.

We now live in a world where our news, our views and the most forceful messages are found in moving images.

Our aim is to develop and deliver the campaigning capacity and video and media communication skills of economically, socially and democratically marginalised communities of 16-20s in the UK in such ways that they are better able to identify, campaign and influence decisions which affect them.

Young campaigners for change can connect and collaborate around common causes, using participative video and digital media to deliver and distribute those messages and measure their impact. Our enormously scalable cloud-based community of on-the-ground young campaigning groups creates a highly social space of instant messaging, resource and expertise sharing, to drive active collaboration around that group's common cause - to bring meaningful and measurable change at local, regional and ultimately national level.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

"The most effective social change for 16-20s takes place, when the most highly trained experts can share unique professional experience with the widest number of young people in the most engaging, dynamic and interactive ways possible to give them the skills to shout, campaign and punch above their weight in a crowded media landscape of competing agendas."

The Leadership Team |  UKfilmNet

UKfilmNet is a knowledge transfer from the very best practitioners and creatives, to those looking to understand, enrich and apply this knowledge in their own lives and work.

OUR MISSION

Using our expertise as teachers, educators, film-makers and digital storytellers we aim to develop the campaigning capacity and video and media communication skills of economically, socially and democratically disadvantaged or marginalised communities of 16-20s in the UK in such ways that they are better able to identify, campaign and influence decisions which affect them..



The digital domain - when coupled with hands-on learning - in all its forms is where this happens most effectively, and with greatest reach and impact.

HOW IT WORKS

Teachers, trainers or lecturers are enrolled at the same time as their learners, and social change campaigners. All of them get very scalable access to key skills, resources and know-how.

  •  Ideation & Messaging - How do I frame and plan my cause and my arguments?
  •  Digital (Moving image based) Story-telling and story design - How do I use participative video to collaborate o create a group's message around a single cause?
  •  Multi-media campaigning and persuasion - How do I tailor the messages for the many different platforms, audiences and digital media?
  •  Impact measurement - How do I track and measure who has seen, understood or acted on our campaign?
