Dear friends of the IIRE,
In less than two months, we will again have our annual Ecosocialist School. This school is a unique opportunity for activists to come together, learn, exchange experiences and build networks. But organising such an event is expensive. We try to keep participation costs as low as possible and in addition to that we help cover the travel costs of people from the Global South.
Right now, we are finalizing our participants’ list for the Ecosocialist School 2016 (18 November-9 December). We have applications from Sri Lanka, Philippines, Indonesia, Papua, Congo, Argentina, Germany, France, USA, Lebanon, Denmark, and Venezuela. This years’ youth school involved 23 participants from 13 countries. It clearly showed us that the more varied the experiences of the participants, the richer the discussions are. We would like to keep the school as diverse as possible. However, airfares are far above the budget of our participants from the Global South. That’s why we make this call for donations for the travel expenses of the participants from the Global South. We especially need aid for participants from Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Philippines, Venezuela and Lebanon. Any amount will help us. If you wish, you can specify the country of the participant you want to support. You can find the practical information here. Please earmark your donations as ESS Travel aid. Many thanks!
