Part of frog’s commitment to social impact, the Collective Action Toolkit is a set of activities and methods that enables groups of people anywhere to organise, collaborate, and create solutions for problems affecting their community. From Malawi to Milwaukee, the Collective Action Toolkit has empowered change agents of every age and ethnicity, with over 30,000 downloads in English, French, Spanish, and Chinese since its launch in 2012.

The CAT is open-source, allowing for adaptation and use by anyone, in any country, via a Creative Commons license. With simple vocabulary and concrete insights into how to build a team, carry out research, and develop solutions, the CAT distills design-thinking down to essential building blocks. The result is a stand-alone resource designed to lead anyone, anywhere through the problem-solving process, to any problem, any time.

What is this toolkit?

The Collective Action Toolkit was created to help bring groups together to accomplish a shared goal. It consists of an action map and activities six areas. These activities offer different ways to develop solutions to make change happen in a community or organisation.

Why do people use it?

Many groups are looking for a creative process to help them solve challenges. The CAT provides a framework that offers guidance just when you need it. Your team can decide exactly which activities you need on your own terms.
