Action For Change weekend and AIUK National Conference

February 3, 2011 in events, information by megiana

Hello everyone,

We have some hot of the press information about a few upcoming national Amnesty events.

Firstly, Action For Change weekend

The Action for Change weekend provides essential activism training for Student Groups and is a unique opportunity to gain a wide range of campaigning skills and learn more about the work and structure of Amnesty International. I personally highly recommend this, have bee myself and it’s such an awesome inspiring weekend. Great for anyone considering running for the committee next year or just wanting to get more involved!

Key Details:

When: Friday 11th March – Saturday 12th March
Where: The Human Rights Action Centre, London
Accommodation: Crash pad accommodation for the Friday night
Cost: Free entry to the event and free food throughout the weekend so travel costs will be the only expenditure.

Travel will need to be arranged down to London. And we can only send a maximum of 4 delegates and the event is extremely popular so we need to book our places ASAP. Anyone who is interested get back to me and once we’ve a group of people who want to go, travel arrangements can be made.

Key Details
