APR 11

Beautiful Trouble 4 Climate Strikers

11 April 2020, Manchester

Join this lively and interactive workshop to learn and explore tactics, principles and strategy to supercharge our climate strikes!

There is no Planet B.

So we must win.

We will be considering –

  • How can we come together to make change?
  • What are affinity groups?
  • What can we learn from past movements?
  • What tactics can we use to supercharge our activism into the change we want to see?
  • How can we build confidence in our activism?
  • And how can we support and include each other in this fight to have our planet – and future - thrive?

12-1pm: shared lunch. Please bring vegan food to share.

1-5pm: workshop

All welcome, but this workshop is specifically aimed at School Climate Strikers. Bring your stories of climate striking, and your hearts, head and hands.
