IFM-SEI is looking for a new project officer to co-ordinate our current global project ‘Co-operAction’.
The rise of far-right parties and groups in many European countries is shocking. Sexist jokes, anti-democratic views and racist, anti-semitic, islamophobic and homophobic remarks are accepted in many parts of our society. Easy solutions for complex challenges and difficult circumstances become more and more popular. Also our organisations, individual members and meeting places have been attacked.
Nominations have been re-opened for the Rainbow Network Co-ordinator for IFM-SEI. The post is a three-year term, starting from June 2013. The Rainbow Network is an open network of any member of IFM-SEI interested in working internationally on the issues of gender and sexuality or setting up national networks.
We are back from an amazing Co-operACTION core group meeting. From 3–10 March, 11 educators spent a week full of training on co-operatives, exchanging about unfair trade, experiencing cooperation and planning educational processes for youth co-operative projects in 11 Falcon organisations.
Here is IFM-SEI's first newsletter in 2013 with many interesting short updates from members around the world and invitations to future seminars, summer camps and to the Workers Youth Festival.
We invite young people from our European member organisations to our seminar “Turning the tide: The rise of right-wing extremism in Europe and how to tackle it peacefully”. It will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania from April 28th – May 5th 2013.
