Central Asia Solidarity Groups (Centralasiengrupperna) is co-organizing an activist residency in Kyrgyzstan, together with the youth organization Novi Ritm. The residence will take place during 2 weeks in November, primarily based in the southern city of Osh with Novi Ritm as the hosting organization. We are currently looking for suitable candidates for this residence.
During the residence the activist will work closely with Novi Ritm and conduct a series of activities, including lectures, workshops, planning sessions and meetings. As Novi Ritm and its young members and volunteers are rather new to the thematic areas of environment and climate, the activist will need to expand the knowledge base of participants regarding topics such as the historical origins of the climate crisis, the socio-economic-political explanations of our current global challenges to cut emissions and transition to sustainable societies, and to some extent solutions and necessary actions. The residence will also explore potential grassroots approaches to dealing with the crisis: i.e. organizing, public mobilizations, different forms of activism, resistance, campaigning, nonviolence and civil disobedience. Novi Ritm is interested in starting work in the area of climate and environment, so the residence will also provide a ground to launch various initiatives based on the local or national context.
