Climate Justice is System Change. We need to turn the World around! Now is the time to transform the profit drive, the economy, production and consumption, which is eating our planet alive. This hands-on workshop is for you if you want to imagine and discuss tactics that will make these changes happen defending us against reactionary politics and corporate greed. We start with a short input from various activists with global experience in specific campaigns in problematic sectors such as fossil fuels, industrial agriculture, metallic mining and so on; then we focus on local and global actions and resistance already taking place. Join our open debate, let’s exchange ideas and get active together!
