ONLINE EVENT – Interactive Discussion on Collective Care practices

ONLINE EVENT – Interactive Discussion on Collective Care practices

In the newly adjusted ESC online format, volunteers have put together a participatory virtual program for the time until we can meet again.

Join us this coming Friday as we share and discuss the kinds of care practices we are creating and shaping in and for our communities during these difficult times. Based on the context where systemic violence continously affects the ways in which we exist, we imagine a society that actively builds and maintains alternative structures of care.
We would love to hear about the methods of care work you have organized in your respective communities and exchange ideas on ways we can support each other in sustainable ways.

European Solidarity Corps 2020/21 just started online!

European Solidarity Corps 2020/21 just started online!

The past year was a challenging year where we needed to reconsider and reshape the way we do and organize projects. In this spirit, we wanted to find a way to continue to support young volunteers as we have in the past with our ESC program. In light of the times, we decided to start our volunteering program for 2020/21 online with 3 young people from Ukraine and Belarus.
This is a new experience for us, as we have never hosted an online volunteering service and we hope that it can still be as beneficial to our volunteers.
Check our website for the info about great online activities run by our volunteers and who knows, maybe one day we will meet in person again?

Support revolution in Belarus

For over three months, people in Belarus have been fighting against the authoritarian regime.

Since the first days of the uprising, anarchists have been actively participating in street demonstrations and various initiatives in their places of residence. Activists are agitating for self-organization and decentralized protest. Some organized a partisan group. The determination and persistency of anarchist movement of the country has made us one of the most organized political forces in the fight against the dictatorship.

#ClimateCareUprising!

2020 has made everyone think about what is essential – caring for people, for society and for the planet that sustains us.
