An important aspect of creating sustainable practices is documentation and information distribution. As part of our ongoing efforts to support young activists, EYFA has always gathered and provided useful resources.
Most recently this effort has been renewed and re-focused through the development of guides and online platforms on various social justice and capacity building themes.
On this page you will find all of the resources and materials that we have created or collaborated with through out the years:
Guide “Dealing with conflict in our groups”: A guide written in collaboration with Seeds for Change Oxford and published by EYFA, aimed at people and groups working for social change who want to develop an understanding of conflict and how to deal with it. There are versions in english and castellano.
Can Poetry Survive Capitalism?: We wrote poems – some together, some alone – to share with you on how we contaminate the isolation and alienation of the precarious life under neo-liberal capitalism.
