Generating Momentum 2013 Registration Now Open!

Looking for a great opportunity this summer to meet and connect with other young leaders in Saskatchewan?

GenMo posterSCIC and RPIRG are excited to open registration for our 4th annual Generating Momentum: Activist Leadership Training Camp! If you are 18 to 29 years of age and are passionate about social, global, and environmental justice, this camp is for you!

This year, the camp will be held at Camp Easter Seal, which is located at the beautiful Manitou Beach, just north of Watrous, SK. Our dynamic workshops will include campaign planning, alternative media training, anti-racist education, action training, corporatism, trade and citizenship, group decision making, knowing the treaties, ecological justice, canoeing, hiking, movement building, being an ally, and more!

Our workshops and sessions this year will be focused on uniting progressive voices. With the emergence of widespread social movements such as Arab Spring and printemps erable, the appetite for change is apparent. In Saskatchewan, the flourishing Idle No More movement has shown how different groups of people can come together and find a home for their voices, make them heard, and has inspired previously inactive people to become engaged and involved. What can we learn from this? We will be exploring the interconnectedness of issues in order to understand the societal and economic systems that shape, constrain, and help us.

You will leave the camp with more ideas and skills to create unified partnerships that will respond to needs in communities – partnerships that can collectively mobilize and pool local resources to create positive change!

We are rolling out an early-bird registration fee – only $50 until July 1st! After July 1st, the fee will go up to $75. We are expecting to fill up quickly, so make sure to register early. Bursaries for the cost of registration will also be available. For registration information, please visit:
