The Regina Public Interest Research Group (RPIRG) and the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation (SCIC) are teaming up to offer an amazing training opportunity for young leaders and activists again this summer!
What: 3rd annual Generating Momentum: Activist Leadership Training Camp
When: Thursday, August 23 @ 6:00 p.m. – Sunday, August 26 at 2:00 p.m.
Where: Cedar Lodge in Dundurn (just outside of Saskatoon)
Who: 18 to 29 year olds, passionate about social, global, and environmental justice.
Why: To provide the practical skills, knowledge, education, and networking opportunities necessary to make a difference in your community!
This year, our Generating Momentum workshops and sessions will be focussed on developing, supporting, and uniting progressive voices. We are gearing programming towards learning ways that individuals, groups, and movements can operate within (and outside of) current political, economic, and social systems. By understanding how these systems develop, and our roles within them, participants will leave knowing how to work towards positive change!

Generating Momentum is a great chance to meet the people working on progressive issues and campaigns in Saskatchewan, to participate in training, refine your skills, or learn about issues. Workshops this year will include anti-oppression training, trade agreements, corporate propaganda, queer theory, alternative media, campaign planning, tools for action, and much more! Come as part of a group or as an individual. Registration is $75, and we offer a bursary for the full cost if it is a barrier.
