1. What is Climate Justice?
Climate Justice has become a rallying call for the climate and environmental movements. But what does it actually mean? Join us as we explore what the international climate justice movement is pushing for, why we look for solutions to the climate crisis which create a better world for all, and how we can campaign for climate justice in our communities.

2. Winning change from an unresponsive council
Up and down the country hundreds of councils have declared climate emergencies but haven’t followed through with the necessary action to tackle the climate crisis. In this session we’ll explore how you can influence your council to take climate action where direct lobbying isn’t working. We’ll take you through some key arguments to use and discuss what tactics can help to push your council to go further and faster to address climate breakdown. This training is for local groups and Climate Action groups.
