University 3559 ECOLE!, 3559 rue University, Montreal, QC, H3A 2B1, CA

A reminder that the Sustainable Organizing Seminar is happening on Saturday!Feel free to invite your friends and people who haven’t been involved in the past, and especially to encourage multiple people from each initiative to come – it’s often useful to bring back these ideas with a partner!

PLEASE REGISTER ASAP! You can now choose which workshops you would like to attend if a full day isn’t an option for you!


10:00 - 11:30
Facts don't spark engagement in our initiatives - stories, emotions and values do. We will be looking at our own experiences as a powerful way to increase commitment and engagement from the community around us through storytelling, one-on-ones, and mobilization tactics.

12:30 - 2:00
In a world of constant transiency and high energy, how do we ensure that student initiatives remain sustainable? Join the conversation on building accountable and durable structures, institutional memory and mentorship.

2:30 - 4:00
The first half of this workshop will be dedicated to facilitation techniques, including the use of elicitive questions, pedagogical tools, and accounting for margins and mainstreams in each group. The second half will be an open workshopping time, where participants can gain feedback and ideas to run a workshop in the Winter 2015 semester.
