GAMEChangeNetwork website brings together empowerment methodologies developed since the 1990s with many communities, organisations and individuals worldwide.
It aims to provide an accessible and coherent set of visual and written resources, learning trajectories and contact links. To inspire and support organisations and individuals to innovate and adapt the methodologies for a more equal, democratic and sustainable world.
A world where women and men from all backgrounds and of all ages are freed from all forms of discrimination so they can realise their full potential as agents for empowerment, happiness and environmental sustainability of global humankind.
The website is ‘living’ and constantly updated. It is designed, written and managed by Linda Mayoux on a voluntary basis, except where stated for certain pages that have been sponsored for specific consultancies. The full systematisation of the learning trajectories will not be complete until mid to end 2023. See forthcoming highlights 2023.

Some content has been translated into other languages required by particular partners and processes, please use the search button at the top of each page to locate them.
The resources are copyright of Linda Mayoux unless explicitly stated in specific pages, posts or documents. This is in order to retain public accessibility and ownership and prevent any one organisation ‘owning’ them.
The GAMEChange family of empowerment methodologies adapt similar tools, facilitation and implementation processes to enable women and men from any background to identify and implement their own individual and collective strategies and communicate these to powerful stakeholders.
GAMEChange empowerment methodologies are integrated into other existing activities and interventions. The same tools and participatory processes used at individual level are used for more inclusive and effective participatory technical trainings and organisational strategic planning. This enables effective and cost-efficient strengthening of capacity and self-reliance at community level. And inclusive informed communication between stakeholders at different levels.
Change Leadership and Advocacy
The ‘big picture’ aim of GAMEChange methodologies, underpinning all other elements is the vision of a community-led change movement promoting social justice, inclusive and participatory democratic structures and environmental sustainability.
