What Are We Doing?

When we hear the term “political well-being”, a number of confused thoughts pop up in our minds. It is not entirely clear what is meant by “well-being”, let alone “political well-being”, is it?

Political Well-Being is based on envisioning the mental, physical and emotional aspects of empowerment simultaneously and in a way that includes individual, organizational and social levels.

We approach individual, organizational and social empowerment simultaneously and in relation to each other, and try to spread the concept of care-based organizing. At the same time, we carry out various activities to ensure that care-based politics can also be decisive in terms of citizens’ voting tendencies.

To spread political well-being and the approach of care-based organizing in Türkiye;

  • We founded the Political Well-Being Platform. The platform meets once a month on specific topics and produces concrete outputs.
  • Through online and face-to-face workshops and panels, we try to reach activists and those interested in political struggle from all over Türkiye.
  • Through our studies on well-being, we highlight the factors that are important for the well-being of activists and citizens.
  • With our practical information notes, we offer guidance on issues that shape political organizations but are not systematically discussed.
  • Within our project titled “Arada Kaynamasın” (Don’t Let It Pass Unnoticed), we gather news of resilience, achievements and hopeful developments that continue to flourish from all over Türkiye despite all kinds of oppression, despair and deteriorating living conditions.

We run and are planning to run researches on citizens', political activists', workers', women's and LGBTİQ's well-being

We came together with activists who mind transforming the concept of politics and empowering struggles and organizations on the basis of well-being and resilience, and together we established the Political Well-Being Platform. Encouraging comradely criticism on topics that pose problems in organizations but are not addressed politically and systematically, we come together every month and contribute to the democratic struggle in Türkiye by creating concrete outputs.
