Operation Hedgehog - free training for you!

War on Want and Talk Socialism have teamed up to bring you Operation Hedgehog, and we want you to join us on this journey!

 

Operation Hedgehog is a free ‘train the trainers’ programme. We will train you to deliver fun, interactive workshops which will help people in your community win arguments over the economy, progressive policies and a fair future. Or in other words, we’ll work on countering the ‘common sense’ economic arguments we hear in the pub while avoiding boring people stiff!

Over two hours, we will train you on how to deliver the workshop. You will then see your trainers deliver the workshop you’ve been trained in to the wider public over the following two hours, simple!

We’d especially like to hear from affinity groups: Groups of 3-5 people who already campaign, work or socialise together, who we can train to deliver the workshop as a group.

The next training event which was due to take place in Bristol in May,  has been postoned to the Autumn. Our supporters tell us they are focused on the upcoming General Election.

Wherever you are in the UK  - you can apply here.  Please express your interest here and we’ll be in touch with further details soon!

Operation Hedgehog launched in Glasgow on Sunday 12 February as part of the Neoliberalism Vs Democracy conference. We had attendees from Glasgow, Edinburgh, and as far as Skye and Belfast! Our Manchester event was attended by groups and campaigners from all around the North of England. Our London event was a full house from the South East!
