Let's take a moment to learn about how blockades have helped us win land rights, workers rights and climate justice

Coming up next is "Blockades and community care: nonviolence as healing"

more info below

When we return to our work on the ground at the frontlines of the climate crisis, fighting companies whose main goal is exploitation for the sake of profit, let’s be prepared!

Join this webinar series to find out what ingredients we need to build a healthy, meaningful blockade.

This webinar series will be an opportunity for us to go a little deeper into some of the central ideas that shape strong blockades. We know that blockades are integral to meaningful changes in society, but how can we have blockades that push the boundaries of politics on this continent?

Check out the sessions and RSVP to this event to find out about all of them

Follow us on this journey from home. Whilst our physical energy is spent working on the important community care in response to COVID-19 there is an opportunity to investigate what makes a strong blockade. First ingredient of course is you, so come along and lets make some changes now!

Blockades and community care: nonviolence as healing

One of the foundations of the work we do in nonviolence is nonviolent communication. This short introduction to Nonviolent Communication will help keep us on track while facing the ever increasing challenges to do our work sustainably and attend to our relationships.

Despair, anger, and fear drain energy from the beauty of the vision we have for the world. Identifying and focusing on what really matters creates energy and unleashes more creativity in imagining strategies to meet more people’s needs. To be driven by vision is the most effective way to sustain ourselves in our work while opening up to what is possible beyond what we have imagined.

*Please note, we will not be recording this session. We hope you can join us on Thursday night.
