Popular Education Workshop at Highlander Center

The Highlander Center was the main inspiration for the eight year old Antioch University New England Environmental Studies master's program track in Advocacy in Social Justice and Sustainability. Here is a chance to go to Highlander for a great workshop at a very low cost.

United For A Fair Economy's Popular Economics Education Institute: An intensive Bilingual Training of Trainers program for activists working for social and economic justice.

UFE’s Popular Economics Education workshops transform dry economic statistics into memorable learning experiences that connect with people’s lives and lead to action. This 3 1/2-day bilingual Training of Trainers Institute will give you an opportunity to explore the methodology behind the workshops, practice leading a presentation, and give and receive constructive feedback, as well as to review information about the roots of economic inequality and what we can do to move the struggle for economic justice forward.

We will demonstrate UFE’s most recent workshop on the current economic crisis, “Bankers, Brokers, Bubbles & Bailouts” as well as “Economic Refugees: Immigration and the Growing Divide.” Also, participants should be prepared to have fun and share diverse cultural perspectives.
