#NoWar2022: Resistance & Regeneration, a virtual global conference
July 8 - July 10$45
Hosted virtually through the Zoom Events platform, #NoWar2022 will facilitate international solidarity by bringing together speakers and attendees from around the world. As we resist the institution of war worldwide, from crippling sanctions and military occupations to the network of military bases that encircle the globe, how can we simultaneously “regenerate,” building the alternative world that we want to see based on nonviolence and a culture of peace?
#NoWar2022 will highlight unique stories of change-making, both big and small, around the world, that challenge the structural causes of war & militarism while, at the same time, concretely creating an alternative system based on a just and sustainable peace.
#NoWar2022 will illustrate inspirational examples of social change activism that, as described by political theorist Adrian Kreutz, “bring about this other world by means of planting the seeds of the society of the future in the soil of today’s. … [S]ocial structures enacted in the here-and-now, in the small confines of our organisations, institutions and rituals mirror the wider social structures we can expect to see in the post-revolutionary future.”
#NoWar2022 participants will leave both inspired by what is possible and equipped with the tools to reimagine a just and peaceful future in their own communities and worldwide.
#NoWar2022 is being organized in partnership with the Save Sinjajevina campaign in Montenegro, which aims to block a NATO military training ground & preserve the Balkans’ biggest mountain grassland. Save Sinjajevina representatives will Zoom in to the virtual conference and there will be opportunities to support the in-person actions happening in Montenegro during the week of the conference.
