Needed: Your ideas on workshops for our conference

The conference is now less than 6 months away.  But we haven’t gotten a lot of responses to appeal for ideas for workshops.  The plan is to have 20 of these over the course of 2 days.  So please – if you have any ideas for subjects you would like discussed, please share them!  Email [email protected] with your ideas.  Thanks very much.

  • Last year the ‘What is LabourStart’ session was well attended – well beyond our expectations really. As many of those attending the conference will not know much about LS, it might be worth repeating.

    As well, I think it may be a good idea to do, early on, a ‘social media for dummies’ workshop, something that is a quick survey of the online organizing tools that are available. I know it is the theme of the conference but I think we can expect many attending to be more towards the international solidarity end of the interest spectrum and in need of a brief overview of the tech that will likely be referred-to throughout the conference.

  • And of course each of the North African countries would probably be worth a workshop on their own, but it might also be interesting to, in addition, have presenters from each on a panel where they focus on and compare a specific issue or trend.

  • Global themed caucuses might be appreciated, outside of the workshops I mean. Public sector unions, oil industry unions etc. Just a quick opportunity to network a bit.

  • The state of trade unions in Palestine and Israel?
