Nonviolence: A (Practical) Tool for Change

By Jonathan Bartley
June 9, 2009

In July, our partners the Fellowship of Reconciliation are initiating a new project: a training weekend to give people practical skills in peacemaking and nonviolence.

The weekend is for 18 to 30 (ish) year olds who are interested, active and/ or engaged in peace and conflict issues and who want to explore nonviolence and its uses.

The weekend offers the opportunity for those new to the subject, or old-time campaigners, to learn new skills, practice applying them, and discuss nonviolence as a tool for social change.

The conference is being held at the Guy Chester Centre, North London and is subsidised to allow as many people to attend as possible. A limited number of travel bursaries and subsidised places are available. (Places are £45 if booked before 1st June 2009 £55 after)
