Campaign series starts this month

Fórsa’s campaigning summer series kicks off later this month with a collection of member training events, and public webinars.

The campaigning summer school has been an integral event in the union calendar since June 2017. In light of the current Covid-19 restrictions, the 2021 school is being delivered online from Tuesday 22nd June to Saturday 26th June.

The member training sessions will delve into the world of campaigning, while the public webinars will explore the future of work, campaigning in hostile environments, and the role of the State in a post-Covid world.

Speakers will include TASC director Dr Shana Coen, barrister-at-law Ann Christine Fitzgerald, ICTU social policy officer Dr Laura Bambrick, and Fórsa general secretary Kevin Callinan, amongst others.

Each moderated session will feature a panel discussion followed by questions moderated through the video-conference chat box.

Registration for member training is open until Wednesday 16th June at noon, and can be accessed HERE. There are a limited number of spaces available so please register early.

Applications will be taken on a first come, first served basis.

Registration for the public webinars can be accessed HERE and will remain open until midnight on Friday 18th June.
