On the weekend of 11th-12th February a few of us from Tesseract will be running a workshop as part of the Sustainable Futures Forum, which is run by the student activist group ‘People and Planet’. We’ll be talking about our Anusaran Project with loads of little stories and the problems we have faced so far, and chatting about the value of creativity in humanitarian work. It’s sure to be amazing, and there are loads of other interesting people talking and great opportunities to learn and get in touch with people- so you should come along if you can!
Here is the blurb from People and the Planet:
Sustainable Futures Forum
11-12 February 2012 at Strathclyde University in Glasgow
To celebrate Go Green Week, we are putting on a weekend conference for students across Scotland. This will be an opportunity for university and college students to network and exchange ideas on sustainability and social justice projects and campaigns on their campuses. Covering issues from the tar-sands to transition and human rights, there will be sessions on everything from getting green jobs or green fingers, to radicalising your curriculum and engaging your community. The event will also include NUS & CASP ‘Transition on Tour’ workshops and the People & Planet regional democracy event.
Packed with talks, workshops, skills-shares and cycle-powered social, the Sustainable Futures Forum will be the student sustainability event of the year in Scotland!
