A 4 month online training offering a range of tools, collective and personal, which can make our activism more effective and sustainable. They can help us avoid burnout and add continuity to our movement building. A ‘regenerative’ approach goes beyond sustainability to explore how we can organise in ways that actually renew or revitalize our own resources and those of our groups – this can help us stay inspired, nourished, & more creative in our tactical approach.

This training is specifically designed to respond to the needs, issues and challenges of LGBTQI+ activists in Central-Eastern Europe.

The aims of the training are to:

• Equip participants with basic knowledge and tools around personal, group and movement resilience

• Offer a nourishing and supportive space to explore one’s own resilience

• Build meaningful relationships among participants

• Enable participants to implement changes in the groups and networks they are working with

The topics we will focus on are:

• Relationship building and sustaining

• Burnout basics, prevention and how to work with it

• Repression and suppression analysis, prevention, risk assessments

• Trauma basics and community based healing tools, first responses

• Emotional literacy

• Navigating power in our groups and in our movements

• Conflict transformation and communication cultures

• Ecology of Social Movements
