PRACTICAL - INSPIRING - SUPPORTIVE

Helping prepare ourselves for action at the G8 summit in Scotland, July

2005, and actions before and beyond!

You are: wanting to share your skills with others involved in activism and

campaigning, and willing to pass on your experiences.

We are: a small group of activists who have given a number and variety of

trainings over the last years.

We are aiming to provide a series of “Train the Trainer” style days for

people who want to find ways to improve how we work together as activists.

People who come on these days can then take skills back to their various

groups & communities and organise further trainings.

Of course you can come, but it's worth emailing the Training people first just so's they can get an idea of numbers and what people are interested in.

Think it's gonna be at the centre if we're still there if not at the warehouse - Decoy, or another occupied space tongue
