Een introductie workshop in duurzaam activisme. Voor iedereen die actief is voor sociale verandering en het lang wil blijven doen. We leren, ervaren en verkennen manieren om met de ups en downs in de strijd voor verandering om te gaan. Zodat we persoonlijk, collectief en als beweging langdurig actief blijven.

De locatie is eenvoudig, we hebben gemeenschapsruimtes en je slaapt in je eigen tent. Er wordt biologisch veganistisch voor je gekookt en het programma wordt verzorgt door ervaren trainers. De voertaal zal engels zijn, maar Nederlands is ook mogelijk. Meer details in het engels, zie beneden.

Inspired by the Sustaining Resistance training at Ecodharma and followed there the training for trainers, we are bringing a shorter version of this course to the Netherlands. So you don’t have to travel far!

Geïnspireerd door de Sustaining Resistance training in Ecodharma (Spanje) en daar de training voor trainers gevolgd te hebben, brengen we nu een kortere variant naar Nederland. Je hoeft nu niet ver te reizen en heb de mogelijkheid om ook in het Nederlands te spreken.
