Nonviolence Training

15th of May - International Day of Conscientious Objection

Since 2001, War Resisters' International has coordinated international activities around 15 May - the International Day of Conscientious Objection. The day began in 1982 as European CO Day, but since 1986 has been celebrated as International Day of Conscientious Objection.
War Resisters' International sees activities around 15 May as an opportunity for conscientious objection activists to share their experience, and learn from each other's struggles and campaigns. Since 2002, these activities include an international event, often with a nonviolence training and a nonviolent action as major parts.

Doing your own handbook

Since this is an international handbook, we realize that many groups will translate materials to create their own handbook. If you are thinking of producing your own handbook here are some tips. First of all you need to be clear about the reason for the handbook, who is it for? and how it will be used? This will shape what you choose to include. You need to think about the amount of energy you are willing to put into doing your own handbook - will you use existing materials from this handbook and others? or do you want to write additional materials? Another important aspect while thinking of producing your own handbook is thinking, what would make special your handbook?
