All-Ireland Student Activist Weekend

7-9 October, Dublin

Join us for an incredible activist training weekend!

The Student Activist Weekend is an opportunity to get a deep training in essential campaigning skills that can be applied to a wide range of issues, including how to plan and strategise to achieve your goals, getting your story in the media, non-violent direct action training and more.

You’ll meet activists from all over Ireland, find out about the Fossil Free campaign to get your college to divest from fossil fuels and the Sweatshop Free campaign in support of electronic factory workers whose rights are abused day in day out.

It doesn’t matter if you have been campaigning for years or you have never been on a demonstration - by the end you’ll be equipped with awesome campaigning skills and have met an incredibly supportive network of activists.
