Event description

Description

Are you campaigning on issues of climate, social or environmental justice, or have you thought about getting involved? Join Young Friends of the Earth Scotland for our skill share weekend and AGM in Dumfries & Galloway from 4th-6th of October to get you skilled up for taking action on the issues you care about.

Our grassroots network is growing and encompasses young activists engaged in many exciting projects and campaigns. This weekend will provide an opportunity to share skills, resources, ideas and experiences, engage in collective learning, and meet likeminded young people from across Scotland. It doesn't matter whether you’ve been campaigning for years or are just taking your first steps into activism, this weekend is open to you!

The weekend will be designed and run by young people to ensure it is as effective and useful as possible. Please let us know what you would like to learn more about and what skills you could share with others. Sessions can be practical, creative, theoretical, historical, musical, educational. They can be on anything from creative activism, to plant identification, to zine making, to campaign strategy. You get to decide!

On Sunday afternoon we will have an AGM, where our new steering group will be elected. Anyone is eligible to run! If you'd like to find out more about being on the steering group, email yfoescotland@gmail.com.

WHEN? 5pm on Friday 4th of October until 4pm on Sunday 6th of October. A full agenda will be released closer to the date.
