Welcome to GlobalSkillsXchange!
We invite you to a weekend full of workshops in London in the run-up to the week of action against the G8, as we believe learning from each other is crucial for our movements.
The events will focus on the following themes:
- Real democracy, assemblies and horizontal organising
- Economical, social and political alternatives
- Strategies of resistance and action
- Online platforms/resources/tools
We will share tools, skills and experience to take back to our local struggles, while defining common projects/actions/campaigns for global collaboration – moving away from capitalism and fake democracy towards fair, sustainable futures.
Below you can find the full programme, and there is more information on our website.
Please register here if you would like to take part: http://globalskillsxchange.net/register/
