A training designed for experienced activists who want to mobilize in their country!
Directly inspired by the Climate Games that occurred with great success during the COP21 in Paris and around the world, TTIP Game Over is a game (rules: here) calling for creative actions to disrupt TTIP negotiations and denounce TTIP & CETA as anti-democratic – designed with, by and only for multinationals. Time to REBOOT DEMOCRACY!
Several organizations have joined their efforts to organize a 3-day Training for Trainers, which will provide you with all you will need to mobilize people and organize an action training back in your own country. This will be an important step in getting people from across Europe to come to Brussels in autumn, for the game’s second “round”, or to participate in TTIP Game Over in your country.

# Basic accommodation will be provided for free (bring sleeping bag and mat). If you need more accessible accommodation, tell us and we’ll do our best to arrange this for you.
# Vegetarian/vegan food will be provided on a donation basis.
# Travel costs: If you need financial support, we can reimburse 70% of your ticket cost. Travel cost shouldn’t be a barrier to participation: tell us if you need more support.
There is not enough time for a selection process: we’ll register the first ones who answer until our maximum number is reached. So please, register!
We expect participants to have some experience of participating in direct actions or civil disobedience (or other forms of creative actions), and to be enthusiastic to organize mobilization afterwards in your own country.
You don’t have to have any previous experience in giving trainings or in facilitation.
We also hope that you will be able to attend the whole training. If so, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with the filled in registration form in attachment.
We look forward to meeting you in Brussels in September, and working together on this exciting training for trainers !
