Empowering individuals and communities to create change

At the Centre for Communication and Social Change (CfCSC), we research, teach and design communication processes, techniques and media that facilitate social, economic and technological development in sustainable and equitable ways. Such processes emphasise listening, responding to, and helping people give direction to their own change, and supporting environments that enable this change to take place. Through this work, we aim to contribute to a world where all voices are heard, equally respected and included in decisions that affect them.
