Here’s a peak at what we’ve been doing recently and what we’ve got coming up. By no means an exhaustive list.
A fresh Newsletter with a social movements agenda for the year
We’ve crafted a brand new Newsletter gathering as many exciting events and call outs for 2018 from our Network. You can view the printable brochure here. If you want to subscribe to our network-list (moderated and low traffic) please do so here: https://lists.eyfa.org/mailman/listinfo/network
EYFA’s Help Desk
For a few years now, we’ve been providing support to Berlin activist networks to strengthen group processes, as well as access to financial and infrastructural possibilities. If you’re part of an up-and-coming grassroots activist group who could benefit from a consultation, we’d be happy to meet and share our tools, processes and recommendations.
Миру мир: Connecting peace-building communities across Europe
Our three new EVS volunteers arrived in July and we are happy to welcome them in the EYFA office. The project they will be working on aims to support youth peace-builders to reframe peace on the personal, interpersonal and European level.
The volunteers will explore and and critically engage in peace-building activities, based on their experiences, research and findings, as well as learn the successful campaigning practices.
Activities include supporting the coordination of international youth activist gatherings, conducting workshops and discussions for local Berlin youth, gathering materials and field research in topics connected to peace-building and participating in non-hierarchical, consensus based office dynamics.
Up and running!
We’re done setting up and are now busy maintaining and updating two great online resources:
The Skillshare Network http://skillsharing.net/
Anti-racist toolkit http://antiracist-toolkit.net/
Last but not least
As you might imagine there’s many other tasks involved in running our office and network. We won’t list them all, but trust us when we say we’ve got more than enough on our plates every single day 🙂
