How to participate in the Event

We ask that you register for this event by returning our flyer, stamped to the address printed on it or copy and paste the form at bottom of article and emailing it to parachutes@riseup.net. There is a max limit on all workshops.

Workshops are by Donation, suggested at €5 for a half day and €10 for a full day. Beverages and vegan lunch available by donation too.

Seeds for Change Network works with grassroots groups involved in Environmental and Social Justice issues to help them organise for action and positive social change. One way we do this is by providing free workshops and training covering all aspects of campaigning work. When developing a workshop or training session we work closely with the group involved to find out in which way we can best provide support.

An important area is that of working in groups and community building. We offer workshops on group organisation, decision-making and group dynamics. Conflicts between members, frustration at the lack of success, dwindling numbers, the question of where to go from here are problems every group experiences at some stage. Facilitation and support from outside can often help groups to overcome obstacles. Someone from outside can see things in a fresh way, help to facilitate group decisions and empower the group to get a project going again.
