FIAPO organises training workshops and events annually for Indian animal rights activists to come together, learn and network. In 2017-18, we are organising regional events to improve access and ease, and to create a platform that enables activists working in a specific region to come together as a stronger force.

4 weekend residential bootcamps – one for each area (North, South, East and West) are thus being organised, inviting all animal rights activists from that region for a weekend of workshops, discussions on regional (and national) priorities, networking and sharing tools and best-practices.

Where and When?

We are requesting full participation – meaning arriving by Friday morning and leaving on Sunday evening. We want to create a focused learning environment as well as a sense of community.
