The School Start Up WorkGroup

The aim of the workgroup is to set up an online school start up course. This course will not be like a traditional course as defined by mainstream education. It will not qualify you to start a school. It is a starting point for conversations and thinking about the different ideas and challenges involved in setting up an alternative education school. The course will be based on online. Although there may be the possibility of regional live meetings should this organically come out of the sessions. The course will last for 6 - 8 weeks. The sessions will last for roughly 2 hours and will take place at the same time each week.

Online Conference Workgroup

The aim of the workgroup is to organise a one day online conference in February 2016.

Google Grants Workgroup

Google offers some free advertising for non-profits and we are trying to make sure that we make the most of this in every region of Europe in their natives languages. We are looking for native French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian speakers to help with this project so that the ideas of democratic education can spread throughout Europe.
