Les groupes populaires (ou citoyens – en anglais grassroots) et en particulier les groupes étudiants, sont confrontés à un risque élevé de dissolution, ce qui nuit à la création d’une dynamique pérenne. Souvent, les groupes n’ont pas de structure permanente, ce qui cause une incapacité à transmettre leurs ressources et connaissances à la prochaine génération de personnes étudiantes et militantes.

Los grupos de activismo de base corren riesgo de disolverse ya que su alta tasa de renovación de miembros es un obstáculo que frena su impulso. La falta de permanencia en estructura resulta en la incapacidad de transmitir los recursos y conocimiento de los grupos a la siguiente generación de organizadores estudiantiles. Más específicamente, los grupos estudiantiles se enfrentan contra los cambios predeterminados por los semestres escolares y la duración de los estudios. La renovación frecuente también les da la oportunidad a los organizadores de poder planear alrededor del ciclo natural de 3 o 4 años de los estudiantes. Los retos se pueden superar al aplicar estrategias que ayuden a los grupos a prepararse para la renovación.

Systems thinking provides campaigners and organisers with an overall approach and a set of tools to understand the entrenched problems we work on and more strategically engage with the complex systems that we operate in. In this guide we look at systems practice as an overarching approach that can help our campaigns and organising strategies be more effective at driving systems change. Thanks to the volunteers who translated this guide into Farsi!
