Below are stories of exactly how we learned what we did as we tried new things in new places. They each come with "insights" that, we hope, can help new and old Yes Guides and other activists to think up and carry out future actions.
The first three stories are about the 2019-2020 Yes School actions with Bertha Challenge fellows and their organizations in Cape Town, Belfast, and Tanzania. They're currently in text form; soon they'll be entertaining and instructive videos.
The above stories have pushed us to dive into some of our best-known past hijinks and recount the full stories behind them, many of which have never been told. We're writing and posting them one by one, so if you come back in a week, there are likely to be one or two more.
These stories—of mistakes, surprises, and insights—are often more interesting and instructive than what's in our movies. So even though these are still all text, we're going to turn some of them into videos too.
