OCCUPY U.: PRESENT-DAY STRATEGIES FOR CHANGE AND THEIR EFFECTIVENESS
Democratic movements in many countries have sought to “occupy” as a symbol and organizing tactic for political, social, economic, and ecological change. This workshop encourages participants to dialog and research strategies and tactics used by present-day and past movements for change to determine which are most effective. The workshop draws on contemporary and historical texts, with role plays and invited speakers. Participants co-create the schedule with the workshop facilitator by recommending topics for following sessions. The project is intended to foster knowledge acquisition, critical thinking, and dialog to foster change.
