La Grande Transition - Montréal 24-26 May 2019

https://lagrandetransition.net/

(English version) switch between EN and FR at top of page. A full program follows.

The urgency of action is no longer to be demonstrated. The effects of the climate crisis are already there, the economic inequalities are breaking record every year, the far right is rising all over the world and the relations between the major world military powers are increasingly strained.

It is not enough to raise awareness. We need to organize the resistance.

Following the success of the 2018 edition, the collective of The Great Transition invites the whole of civil society to a weekend of debates and discussions on strategies and ways to implement concretely in order to change the world, here and now.

In the program, guest speakers involved in struggles in Québec, Canada, Germany, England, in France, Spain and the United States will feed into the discussions.

The conference will take place at 200 Sherbrooke West, Montreal (Sherbrooke Building of UQAM).

Simultaneous interpretation towards French and English will be available.

This is an event (the 2nd edition) but I'm posting it here because there will also be repercussions in its wake.

It is sold out, but I managed to get a ticket as some people have cancelled. This may be possible for others, if not, it will all be video-conferenced.
