In my final post about the Campaigns Totals survey that I’ve been running over the last few months, I’m going to take a look at what the results tell us about the organisations running these campaigns.
I’ve already noted that actions are being generated by a vibrant civil society, and that through my survey actions from 66 organisations were named in the responses, and that excludes the 76 actions that I wasn’t able to identify an organiser for.
The table below shows the top 15 organisations by actions generated, and the only organisations to generate more than 20,000 actions in the 12 months of the survey;
With regard to the ‘top’ issues that actions are being generated on;
- Sustainable Development – 57 actions including 25 on Climate Change and other actions on bio-fuels, oil, nuclear and energy policy.
- International Development – 54 actions including 11 on debt and other action on aid spending, women’s rights and water/sanitation
- Animal Welfare – 14 actions including on issues such as circus animals and battery hens.
- Public Services – 12 actions including a number focusing on cuts.
- Tax policy – 10 actions
