Every year the Australian Student Environment Network organises a Training Camp in January to help skill up various collective members for the year ahead, to network with other collectives and to plan for ASEN’s future.
For 2012 the ASEN Training Camp will run from January 20th – 25th and will be held on Wiradjuri Country at Caloola Farm in the ACT (about an hour from Canberra).
2012 also signifies the 40th anniversary of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra which we will be attending and supporting after Training Camp.
The 6 days will cover workshops and discussions around:
- Collective organising skills
- Theories of change
- Successful campaigns
- State and collective strategising
- and many more…
A full programme will be released once confirmed.

Dear beautiful creative friends,
First of all, we would like to say THANKYOU for your artworks and
offers. The life and vibe of Germinate is created by the artworks that
grace its pages.
If you have any existing artworks you think might be appropriate for
the zine, we would love to see them. Or, if you have any time over the
next couple of weeks, the following is a list of topics we are
expecting to receive articles on that we hope might inspire your
creative minds : (note – artworks don’t need to accompany articles,
but we would love article illustrations if that is up your ally)
Insects as human food
Coal seam gas
On-campus vegie gardens
The Politics of Money
Reflections on SoS Albury
Impacts of carbon trading on farmers in Honduras
Review – Coal Seam Gas protest cd

If any of these articles interest you and you want more info, we can
send them to you when they come in.
Although our first deadline was on November 11th, this date is
flexible, and we would happily receive artworks and illustrations
after that date – just let us know what you would like to work on and
how long you think you will need.
If you have any questions please shoot us an email or leave us a
message on the facebook page.
Plenty of people have registered so far, but due to some late promotion, we’ve decided to extend the registration deadline until Friday August 26th as to allow more people to get involved.
Even though the deadline has been extended, we encourage you to register as soon as possible so we can have a better idea of numbers for food and accommodation.
So please, head to the registration page to register before Friday August 26th.
