In these times of crisis – climate breakdown, billionaire-owned 'propamedia', fuzzy wars, refugee desperation, brutal austerity, etc. – humanity is being called to pull together in an integrated, compassionate & global society. Radical and rapid societal shifts are needed – and soon! – as we face the possibility of near-term human extinction. History has shown that social movements – embedded with daring civil disobedience – are capable of bring deep transformation. Join this interactive workshop to explore the relationship between activism and journalism in this time of crisis.
