Why should you apply?
Since 2011, the Arab Spring and nonviolent movements in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas and Oceania have seized the world’s attention as never before. Anti-austerity organizing in Europe, campaigns for environmental justice in China, anti-corruption struggles in Africa and Asia, and struggles for indigenous rights and women’s rights around the world are all evidence that citizens are engaging in civil resistance to make their voices heard and hold powerholders accountable.
Since its first edition in 2006, over 350 participants from over 90 countries have come together to learn and share experiences from their respective struggles or work in the field.
