Animation is CLP’s core practice. This practice involves an iterative process that applies the learning and action cycle in people’s specific situations and with the intention that they mobilise themselves to act to change that situation in ways that they decide. CLP’s practice of animation is composed of key elements which form its activities:
- Making connections
- People take action for themselves
- Reflection and learning
- Material support
CLP does not undertake work outside of its core process. It will take on projects to explore themes that emerge from its work and that are designed as integral to its core process.
Supporting processes are those required first, to maintain the professionalism and quality of CLP’s core process and second, to disseminate good practice and documentation arising out of local struggles.
