Abstract: ONE SKY is a learner centre funded by the federal and provincial governments. It seeps to provide resources to support the efforts of community organizations "on the front lines" who are working on various issues. These resources usually take the form of printed materials, audio-visuals, classes, public speaking, and the use of space. ONE SKY's work has focussed on labour, women, native people, solidarity with Latin America, and agriculture. Its resources are used by schools, churches, and community organizers. Some of the resources provided are:
- One Sky Report, a monthly publication of articles and commentary focussed on a particular
theme. Recent editions have focussed on "Labour and the New Technology", "Racism and
Economic Power", "Women in the Work Force", and "Guatemala: The People United;"
- a clipping service focussing on the issues already mentioned as well as all Third World countries,
corporations and finance, uranium issues, repression and civil liberties, natural resources
and Saskatchewan development;
- a periodical library of over 100 publications, including some difficult to find in the mainstream
library system; and
"citizen educator" kits on "Multinationals and Saskatchewan" and "Native People".
Periodically, ONE SKY also provides courses called "Global Issues" which examine the interealationships of poor popular movements and local and international issues.
