Sustaining Resistance, 2013

Tools for Effective-Sustainable Activism,12-20 October 2013, Catalan Pyrenees

!! Deadline to apply for fully funded places, including travel: 20 April 2013 !!

This residential training, hosted in a wild part of the Catalan Pyrenees, offers personal and collective tools to make our activism more effective.

Sustaining Resistance helps us:

  • stay in it for the long haul, creating personal and group sustainability and adding continuity to our movement building.
  • ensure the collective dimensions of our activism exemplify the values we are struggling for.
  • stay inspired, nourished, empowered, & strategically creative.

The training applies ecological/systems thinking, radical analysis and holistic-participatory learning to the practice of activism and the building of social movements. It offers practical methods for engaging in the inner work that underpins effective social engagement. It will also bring together activists from across Europe to share practice and strengthen networks.

This 9 day residential training in a wild and remote part of the Catalan Pyrenees in Spain will also give you the opportunity to experience life in a land-based community based on simplicity, low-impact living and being close to the land.
