Today's Globalization is a popular education toolkit. Project South is a broad-based, community-driven membership organization that develops popular political and economic education and action research for organizing and liberation. We develop indigenous popular educators and movement leaders from grassroots and scholar-activist backgrounds, bringing them together on the basis of equality to engage in building a bottom-up movement for social and economic justice. This toolkit tells a story. For more than 500 years people around the world have fought for their freedom. This toolkit is a piece of those stories. The history and experience of those who have struggled before and alongside us is a story. The key to finding successful strategies for our own freedom lies in learning this story. This toolkit is laid out in order. It begins with a glossary and some essays that provide an analytical framework, moves to history, then on to the workshop, and finally ends with some additional resources. The primary intended audience is people with an interest in globalization and who are seeking a deeper understanding of it. Some participants may have no understanding at all. Each person may be working on a broad range of issues that, at first glance, don't seem to connect. That's fine. This workshop shows how all these issues are connected on some level. We recommend no more than 25 participants per workshop. While this workshop can stand alone, we recommend it be linked to others. Globalization is big, and one workshop isn't enough to understand it all. We suggest a series. It is important to link local work to international trends, but it is also important that we do our work strategically. Spend time during each workshop strategically thinking about how local organizing will be impacted by issues presented in the workshop. Remember, use the tools in this toolkit as a beginning - then change and shape them into an educational process that works for you.
