Rethinking Economics International Summer Gathering

Words by Rowan Mataram

FANTASTIC NEWS!

You are invited to our International Summer Gathering!

Dates: 11th – 17th August 2018

What is it?

This summer RE is hosting, for the first time, an International Summer Gathering in France. This will enable RE to bring all of its member groups together in person at La Bergerie, a stunning eco-centre near Paris, for a whole week of movement building. The Gathering has been made possible with the generous support of the KR, Marisla and Leopold Mayer Foundations.

Over the course of the week, we will offer training, peer-to-peer learning and strategy planning, with a wider aim of strengthening connectivity between our international community and the wider movement for curriculum reform.

Please find a rough agenda here. This will be subject to change.

Entry criteria: 

You must be part of an RE group, or part of one of the following networks: PEPS, the German Netzwerk or oikos.

There are a limited number of spaces on the trip, so we recommend that groups nominate one individual to represent them.

If you are a member of oikos, PEPS or the German Netzwerk, please note that we have only allocated 1-2 places per network, so nominating representatives is advised. 

How do I apply?

Complete the following survey by Sunday 29th April 2018.

What do we expect from you?

If you are successful, there will be work and presentations for you to complete and prepare before the Summer Gathering.

We need you to respond quickly, so that we can get the best deals on flights etc, as our funding is limited.

Is there a cost?

Travel to and from the venue, accommodation, food (three meals a day) and visa’s (where necessary) will be covered by Rethinking.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch: rowan.mataram@rethinkeconomics.org
