We look forward to seeing those that will be able to take part this weekend!
And we hope to be able to organise an online version of it within the year to make this event really global.


Welcome to GlobalSkillsXchange!

We invite you to an event full of workshops in London in the run-up to the week of action against the G8, as we believe learning from each other is crucial for our movements.

The events will focus on the following themes:

  • Real democracy, assemblies and horizontal organising
  • Economical, social and political alternatives
  • Strategies of resistance and action
  • Online platforms/resources/tools

We will share tools, skills and experience to take back to our local struggles, while defining common projects/actions/campaigns for global collaboration – moving away from capitalism and fake democracy towards fair, sustainable futures.

Below you can find the full programme, and there is more information on our website.

Please register here if you would like to take part:

We willl not only be sharing skills but also food and stories over lunch, so we hope you will hang around for more then one workshop!
