513-281-2672GLOBAL THREE: RECLAIMING COMMUNITY AND ENVIRONMENT
APRIL 8 TO 10, 2005 at THE UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI
Global Three: Reclaiming Community and Environment, is a conference designed to reclaim the human connections that make communities and our surrounding environment strong. Through the conference, people are provided with a space where information and skills can be shared while simultaneously having fun, networking, and exposing one’s mind to diverse concepts. “Global Three..” appeals to different interests and walks of life by utilizing a wide variety of methods to disseminate knowledge. These methods, such as workshops, discussions, speaking panels, caucuses, tabling, actions, films, music, art and much more are the cornerstone of the conference.
Topics: The topics of Global Three: Reclaiming Community and Environment are not limited to a few words. The usage of the words community and environment are used as a springboard to dive into several issues such as community, environmental, economic, social, and political justice. Workshops providing action, solution, and empowerment are plenty. Other workshops will simply focus on Art or Cooking. In the end, there are workshops for radicals and reformists, for moms and sons, elders and kids, etc. Global Three: Reclaiming Community and Environment is a conference for everyone and everybody. Confirm speakers so far are Derrick Jensen. Bands that have been confirmed so far are Requiem, MC Homeless, and David Rovics. If you are interested in teaching a workshop, send your proposal to Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org
