International Tibet Network has arranged a few additional activities before and after the 7th International TSG Conference, which all participants are warmly invited to take part in if their travel plans permit.

Wednesday 7 September: Pre-Conference Workshops from 3 – 6pm. There are two workshops, free of charge.

3 – 4.30pm: Strategic Non-Violent Resistance, by Tendor of Tibet Action. Fun and interactive, to set the stage for conference discussions about Tibetan resistance.

4.30 – 6pm: Maximising collective impact from the grassroots up, by Guhyapati. This intriguing session will get us “conference-ready”; to find campaign partners, celebrate our unity and our diversity, and explore when and how collaboration works best.
