Cross-movement meeting for those active in press and public relations work

Cross-movement meeting for those active in press and public relations work 3.- 5. May 2024

Are you part of an activist group and involved in public relations work? Would you like to exchange tools and strategies across movements?
Movement Hub, wort.wechsel and Aktivistinnen Agentur are teaming up to host a workshop weekend, where the following questions will be discussed:

  • What communication strategies do we use to counter the escalation of right-wing politics and discourse?
  • How can we support each other across movements? What are the challenges?
  • How can public relations work in movements be strengthened?
    You can find a draft program here

The weekend is aimed at activists from different movement contexts: e.g. anti-fascism, anti-racism, climate, right to the city, health and agriculture. We are happy to welcome people with different levels of experience in the field of public relations.

Unfortunately, only up to 25-30 people can participate. We would like to ensure that a diversity of movement perspectives are represented at the meeting. Therefore, registration is not first come first serve. We will contact you after the registration deadline to let you know if we can confirm your participation. To ensure that as many groups as possible can participate, it would be good if each group registers a maximum of 1-2 delegates.

The Event will take place in Hannover (Tagungshaus Gleisdreieck)

Registration deadline: 01. April 2024

Crisis, extractivism and debt

Structural reasons for migrations – Brochures

The key to understanding the nature of the life and work of the migrants in Europe is to analyse the dependency links that have consolidated through decades of plundering of common property, financial speculation and indebtedness intheir territories of origin. Understanding the forced nature of these migrations does not only allow us to analyse the reasoning behind these long, hurried, uncertain and hopeful journeys. It also gives us the tools to understand the forms of work and lifestyles in these newfound homes and the relationships that persist with the families and homes in their country of origin.

Authors: María José Gordillo, Darío Farcy und Mariano Feliz.

These broschures are a cooperation between CEP Lohana Berkins and Movement Hub.

Bird Dogging Skillshare

Bird Dogging Skillshare

The tactic is about confronting decision makers and getting them to publically take a position (or embarrass themselves 😎). This can be aimed at increasing pressure, getting greater media exposure, or going viral on social media. In some cases, power and profit interests can be exposed to a wider audience.
