The catalytic team in a large city in East Asia came up with this strategy for launching student-led movements all over the city. The STINT Team in Mexico City has been using a version of this plan this year. Also the a team in Siberia which is made up of Koreans, Americans and nationals. It might not fit one-to-one where you are (Jason in Mexico City said they need to make it a 10-week plan) but might be a way to think through as a team for next semester and how to launch Multiple movements whether you are in a Metro situation or have numerous faculties at your university.
