Power / Knowledge Exchange
Knowledge exchange is important for the mission of universities.
Through the lens of community organising, we help build power to make univeristies and communities the place it should be. Supported by a local network and tools, you can write what happens next, and achieve more for young people. Through the building of collective institutional power in places, we can win change that we're unable to achieve by ourselves. Citizens UK's Power/KE project sees universities as important to this mission.
