This Training the Trainers (TtT) aims to support actions of civil disobedience by building training capacity among grassroots activist groups.
More concretely, it’s an opportunity to help prepare groups for mass actions of disobedience like the Ende Gelände Action for climate justice that will take place in Lausatia (Germany) in May. But action trainings are not only helpfull for actions of different scale, they can also help to strengthen our affinity groups and deepen the preparation and level of organisation in our social movements.
We hope this training will enable participants to give action trainings in their context. So it would be important that people who want to come have the clear intend to organise trainings in their region, or help moderate / facilitate trainings somewhere else. Because actually giving a training in the months after the TtT is part of whats needed to learn to become an action trainer. There are no participation fees, the costs will be covered through donations. There are good possibilities to support people’s travel to the TtT. Generally a bit of experience on participation in action trainings, direct actions or facilitation would be helpful to participate. People are asked to attend all the sessions.
