Hands on Training Weekend for activists and local communities involved in d=
evelopment disputes, with special emphasis on public inquiries.
Date: Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December 2001,
At: FoE Warehouse Birmingham.

The event is about participation, a hands on experience, to enable those at=
tending to better understand the processes involved in development disputes =
of all kinds, and to network.  Far too many developments are allowed because=
 local communities do not have the knowledge or experience to object in a me=
aningful way. CfPS is about redressing the imbalance in the system, by provi=
ding the tools and advice needed by those most affected by adverse developme=
nts and we hope that these workshops will go some way in helping us fulfil t=
hat goal.
