In this course, we will cover some of the basic skills needed when organizing for a participatory society, while learning from the experiences of other groups and movements that have sought to build momentum for a new society.

Some of the skills we will cover include: facilitating skills; and creating safe spaces for engagement for collective liberation.

Some of the current or previous groups and movements we will seek to learn lessons from include; Food Not Bombs, Occupy movement, Anarchist Federation of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (FARJ); Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM); Organization for a Free Society; City Life/Vida Urbana.

We will also rely on the experiences you have had in community or movement organizing.
