This workshop will be of interest to individuals, groups and campaigns working for social change. It will provide the opportunity to share experiences, discuss the political and ethical motivations driving what we do, and identify aspects of existing practices that point towards a better way of being. We hope this will be the start of a collaborative process, working together to find ways of collectively shaping our own future.

We hope to gather responses to the following questions and to use them as the starting point for discussion on May 25th. Your participation in this event would be greatly appreciated.
