Residential Network weekends
Twice a year (in March/April and November) EIL Network members and staff meet for practical and informative workshops, debat
es and activities on global issues and lots of fun at the network weekends. The next Network weekend will take place in Dublin in March 2013. To sign up, contact Niamh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the Network weekend you can expect to:
- Become more informed on global issues: Take part in interactive workshops and learn skills.
- Get creative: Learn creative ways to campaign using art and drama.
- Challenge and take action: Speak with people and make your voice heard in an awareness-raising street action.
- Meet others: Make links and share ideas with other EIL members.
- Relax and have fun: When the workshop sessions wind down on Saturday night it is time for some music, theatre, dance or movies and to make friends at the Network weekend night event.
