Movement Compass Tool: Understand the cycle

The Movement Compass helps organizers of people-powered movements understand the natural changes that a winning movement will often experience.

Each phase in a movement's life comes with a different set of challenges and strategic decisions. Click through The Movement Compass (currently in beta testing!) to find tools that can help you navigate your movement's present moment.


This tool is currently in beta testing, so we want your feedback to improve it! Please take a moment to let us know what you think.


The Movement Compass builds upon the work of Bill Moyer's Movement Action Plan, Movement Netlab's Movement Cycle Matrix, and a few years of painstaking research by movement anthropologist Isa Mayah Mukibi Benros and ActionAid Denmark.
