What is sensing?
Harnessing the potential of people power requires a deep understanding of the people we seek to engage in campaigns. What inspires and motivates them? What are their emotional and practical needs? During the sensing phase you will learn directly from the people you want to campaign with in order to design campaigns that have the greatest potential to involve people in change.

Purpose: To build a deeper understanding of and empathy with the specific audiences we need to engage and conduct field research to provide inspiration for how we can motivate and engage those audiences to be part of the solution.
Outcome: At the end of this stage you should have insights about each of the audience segments for your possible strategies. This may enable you to take decisions about strategies, narrow audience focus and it will provide you with a solid base from which to proceed to idea generation.
