Event description

Description

How can we make the best case for shifting from war to peace? What must we understand and know about the war system if we are to dismantle it? How can we become more effective advocates and activists for ending all wars, pursuing disarmament, and creating systems that maintain peace? These questions and more will be explored as we delve into the course.

Establishing a World of Peace

In this final class, we will recap lessons learned and brainstorm action ideas moving forward. We will discuss the nuts and bolts of grassroots organizing, with a focus on campaign development. We’ll identify effective strategies & tactics for engaging community members and influencing decision-makers. We’ll also look more broadly at movement-building.

Melissa Weale is a keen young activist working to change the system by educating and exampling. She runs her own non-profit called Shecycle that's all about upcycling and redistributing. She hosts monthly workshops, swapping events and circle groups to bring communities together. She is a Unitarian, and part of Canadian Voice of Women for Peace, motivating all ages and all abilities to show they can make a difference!
