This weekend conference will give the committees a chance to communicate and coordinate with each other, and restructure if necessary. It is primarily intended for the members of the Occupy Toronto Committees but totally open to the public and all are welcome.

Members of the 99% who feel like they are more on the periphery, who would like to learn more about the occupy movement and who want to get more involved then they have been so far should consider coming to the Activist Assembly two weeks later: www.facebook.com/events/270078499716966/

    3:00 – 6:00 Visioning Session using the Open Space method of facilitation.

“Open Space Technology is a workshop design tool to use when situations include a diverse group of people who must deal with complex, and potentially conflicting material in innovative and productive ways. It is a facilitation method in which people can identify specific issues on a given topic, self-select into discussion groups, and work with the issue with people also concerned with that issue.”
