Join WRI's eCouncil: webinars on Syria, countering youth militarisation, Turkey, and more...
Every year, War Resisters' International holds an annual Council meeting - this is where some of the big decisions about our organisation get made, by the groups who make up the network. This year our meeting is happening online, and you can take part.
We will have four "webinars" open to the public. These online seminars will explore some of the key work we have been doing this year, and discuss important events internationally. After input from our presenters, there will be time for questions and discussions. They will be recorded and made available online afterwards. All timings are in Coordinated Universal Time. Look that up here.
International responses to Syria, Saturday 15th October, 12.30pm UTC
Stopping the cycle of violence in Turkey, Monday 17th October, 4.00pm UTC
Constructive programmes: 'New Worlds in Old Shells', Wednesday 19th October, 12:30 UTC
Countering the militarisation of youth: examples of resistance, Friday 21st October, 4.00pm UTC
As well as webinars, our meeting will include discussion threads on a platform called Loomio. If you are interested in taking part in these please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 'WRI eCouncil participation'.
There will also be a Skype meeting on the topic of police militarisation around the world. If you would like to take part in this, please fill in the Doodle here, and we will find a time that suits as many people as possible: http://doodle.com/poll/anvnugd4ar7pr3cq
