For those of you who like not just thinking, but doing (or experiencing), FoR (Fellowship of Reconciliation) is running a practical training weekend this summer. Exploring the theme of Nonviolence as a (practical) tool, the weekend asks:
"What does nonviolence mean in practical terms and how can it be applied to our campaigning and lives?"
The weekend event is for 18 to 30 (ish) year olds who are interested, active and/ or engaged in peace and conflict issues and who want to explore nonviolence and its uses. It offers the opportunity for those new to the subject, or old-time campaigners, to learn new skills, practice applying them, and discuss nonviolence as a tool for social change. With expert speakers and skills training, the event provides an opportunity to join a community of like-minded individuals from across the UK.
The Weekend is 3rd to 5th July 2009, and is held in north London. To find out more about the weekend please visit the FoR website, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the FoR office.
