Network Member Services
Large Groups
Small Groups
Joint Press Statements
These are intended to carry additional weight, coming from large numbers of Groups. Evaluations have shown they are appreciated by some larger Groups as well as many smaller Groups.
Includes online statements, eg Solidarity & Resistance: http://bit.ly/112oA1P
Grants and Bursaries
Small Groups benefit most from direct financial support, including grants and bursaries to attend meetings, but larger groups, including SFT, ATC and Tibet Justice have all received grants in past years and could do so in future, eg: http://tibetnetwork.org/portfolio-items/grants/
We try to always provide French and Spanish; we would like to be able to consistently provide Chinese, Tibetan and other languages. Within the Member Resources section, there is a special forum for French language conversation and materials-sharing.
Sample Letters & Press Releases
There are a many archived examples of larger and smaller groups using Network sample materials, but these are primarily intended to benefit smaller groups. Sample letters and press releases are structured to include concise and factual information and example quotes related to the situation that Members can amend to their particular Group's interests. Samples are sent to groups via Members emails.
Visual Campaign Materials
These include portrait placards in multiple languages, social media icons and banners, open photo galleries, archives of past actions and events, press coverage, government letters and statements, video appeals and campaign videos, eg: 100 self-immolations: http://bit.ly/ZZICrl
Campaign Skills Training
Includes training for effective use of social media and online presence (website, etc) as well as approaches to press media, soundbytes, interviews, op-eds, etc.
Individual Support & Training
Network staff have already given one-to-one organizational development trainings to two or three Member Groups and have plans to provide more such trainings in the future. Staff are always available by email and Skype for questions, problem-solving, contacts, and discussions.
Campaign Websites
News Digests
Joint Reports & Press Conferences
We provide accurate, updated, and in-depth information on the changing situation inside Tibet as well as coverage of Chinese politics and border region developments from a variety of trusted sources. Our evaluations show, for example, the Chinese-Leaders site is widely used by Groups of all sizes.
eg: Individual profiles and leadership chart on
Examples include China's Failed Tibet Policies, Xi Jinping's Tibet Challenge as well as submissions to China's Universal Periodic Review, see http://bit.ly/YSw9oT.
With Network coordination on publication, larger Groups contribute and jointly publish, while smaller Groups rarely contribute but have these resources made available to them. The Network also coordinates joint press conferences eg http://bit.ly/ZqqI5d
We administer TSG-L which reaches ~400 individuals and compile weekly digests of news, opinion, and analysis. Our evaluations show that Groups of all sizes appreciate the News Digests, see http://tibetnetworknewsupdate.blogspot.com/
Regional & International Meetings
Find-A-Group Pages
Campaign Plans
Groups of all sizes attend our Regional and International Meetings for different reasons: for networking opportunities, to influence strategy, to give or receive training or benefit from planning. See http://tibetnetwork.org/portfolio-items/regional-meetings
Most Campaign Plans are of primary benefit to smaller Groups but larger groups may have considerable influence. Campaign planning takes place within individual groups and at Network meetings; examples of internationally coordinated campaigns include Olympics, Tibet Third Pole, Free Tibetan Heroes and Stand Up for Tibet.
Tibet Groups without their own websites can use these pages as a mini-website. All Groups can benefit from increased supporters.
Digital Actions
Network Actions were originally developed to offer resources to (small) Groups that had no individual capacity, but with our contract through Engaging Networks, we can embed actions on Member websites and help them to drive traffic to their sites. Supporters of "personalised" Online Actions are not mailed by the Network.
Influencing Global Strategy
Strategic Planning Resources
& Facilitation Training
While evaluations are of course valuable to all Member Groups, realistically the larger Tibet Groups have the most potential to benefit directly from incorporating lessons learned into their own strategic planning. All our evaluations are online at
We have had overwhelmingly positive feedback for our Strategic Planning resources (templates) which are used at workshops and are available for download online.
At Network meetings, individuals from Member Groups have provided updates on their strategies and approaches and explained what was successful for them.
We plan to introduce more specific Facilitation Trainings in the future as well as a series of e-learning videos and presentations related to Strategic Planning and skills development.
There are widely different approaches of larger Tibet Groups to this opportunity of influencing global campaigns and strategy. Some Groups are very actively engaged, some participate as much as resources will permit, while others choose to participate very little. Tactics used include public demonstrations and protests, marches and vigils, die-ins and political theater, film screenings and music concerts, art exhibitions and fundraisers, roleplaying and awareness-raising, commemoration of significant dates, flag displays, petitions and email/letter writing, statements of support from government ministers, officials, and NGO groups.
Groups of different sizes use our campaign sites for different reasons; larger ones for information and smaller ones as a substitute for being able to provide their own. Campaign sites are regularly updated as new info becomes available.
Each Member Group is given an individual 'node' page linked to TibetNetwork.org with their contact information.
All of our current campaign websites can be found here:
Campaign Working Groups
We have various planning mechanisms in operation; including CWGs, Task Forces and consultation groups
