First environmental activism school in Spain

GREENPEACE and the International Institute for Nonviolent Action (Novact) have launched the first school of activism in Spain providing tools for nonviolent protest committed to social justice and the future of the planet.

The school was launched in Barcelona today (Friday) offering training for 18 to 25-year-olds in non-violent activism to campaign for environmental justice and social peace.

It was opened by Pepe Beúnza (72), objector to military service who was imprisoned after refusing to enlist in military service in 1971, and 16 year old Maria. María is a young person activist of the Fridays for Future movement, which has called two global strikes in more than 100 countries to demand action for the climate crisis.

The school offers free online training, open face-to-face courses, camps, meetings and debates teaching young adults how to mobilize and impact their communities non-violently in favour of environmental change and global peace.
