We run regular workshops throughout the year. These usually take place in areas that have a regional GBC group, but we also train people in radical spaces such as direct action camps and occupations. We also run a training for trainers programme to help share our knowledge far and wide.

If you would like to get involved but aren’t sure how you can best use your skills, have a read of our ‘What we do‘ section to learn more about what we do.

Attending any of our trainings will help you get a feel for what Green and Black Cross is all about and is the preferred way of getting involved.

Our workshops include:

We also offer training for police station and court support.

Our trainings are always free to the public and open to all, subject to a safer spaces policy.
