International Winterschool 2019/2020: "Countering right-wing populism"

Winter in der Jugendbildungsstätte Kurt Löwenstein
28.12.2019 bis 04.01.2020

Activists from socialist organisations are invited to Werftpfuhl around New Years Eve from 28 December to 4 January.

Right-wing movements and parties all over Europe are increasingly gaining power in society and their ideas are already established in the minds of many people. We are accomplices of how right-wing radical parties win governmental power and how more and more extremist groups spread their word across Europe. We can read it at a local politics level, but we can also see it in the whole context of the European Union. Is it more than just a current trend, or have those turns to the right come to stay even longer?

Together with other socialist organisations, we want to develop strategies on how to respond to these drifts. Which is our role as socialist educators in these times of violence and propaganda? How can we organise ourselves and what educational approaches are necessary to encounter the increasing power of right-wing ideas? Our goal is to find answers and build a common strength network of socialist solidarity across countries.

Besides sharing work and lots of political debates, we will not forget to have fun together, self-organized by the participants. We will spend a day in Berlin as well and will celebrate together NEW YEARS EVE in our Education Centre.

As usual, the seminar will be held in English.
