Building the World We Want: A 1-Day Course

9 am - 5:30 pm
8115 Middlefield Drive, Petaluma, California
What was “Constructive Programme?” Why did Gandhi consider it the keystone of his campaign for India’s liberation and the overturning of colonialism (as it was then)? How would it help us with the present struggle against globalization and corporate rule? If it were to play a role in the Occupy and other movements of today, what form would it take — or rather is it taking, as there are innumerable efforts right now that could be considered constructive program if they were harnessed for that role?
Explore these questions with us and empower yourself and your organization
to add this neglected dimension to today’s struggle for social change.
Together we can add unforeseen power to our individual and collective
