Gaining cooperation from individuals and groups within the same organization is never easy. Gaining support from diverse individuals and groups who do not share the common ground of the same organization is a challenging and complex social process. Wind advocates who are trying to harness the support of diverse stakeholders for agendas that are often contentious face a true test of skill in interpersonal relationship building. How do you get your wind project supported?

Wind Project Community Organizing: A Handbook for Community Organizers, Activists and Project Managers is a concise, step-by-step guide that can help you learn how to approach every individual related to your project armed with the right information, the best arguments, a Win-Win mind set, and your best feet forward.

Using the easy to understand approach detailed in this handbook, you will learn how to:

  • identify your whole network of key supporters, resistors, gatekeepers, allies
  • understand and use the Big Picture
  • dissect issues raised against your project and determine how to respond
  • prepare yourself with strategies and tactics to help make your project successful

This handbook will help you to find the “Win-Win Sweet Spot” among diverse constituents that can lead to success on your wind project. Take a look here for more information.
