New Directions for Climate Action: 9th-10th July

At the Common Ground meeting in June we got together to continue some of the discussions around radical climate action that were started at Space for Change. The conversation is progressing with lots of discussion around identity, structure, how to organise non/anti-hierarchically, how to keep a radical perspective and more.

A follow-on meeting, ‘New Directions’ has been planned for the 9-10th of July.

As with Common Ground, the meeting is for people who have previously been involved in organising the Camp for Climate Action, or other radicalgrassroots climate action, who are interested in and feel positive about co-ordinating nationally.

If you didn’t make it to Common Ground, you’re still very welcome to attend, though please bear in mind that the meeting will be building on the discussions that took place last time – ie. we’ll be picking up wherewe left off. So do make sure you read the minutes.

Also, we feel it’s important to stress that this is not really a meeting to ‘get involved’. We recognise the need to bring new people in, but this is not the best occasion, as it’s a meeting for organisers who have time and energy to develop new directions based on their common ground.

A group was formed at Common Ground to arrange the details of the nextmeeting, including the agenda and facilitation. As with Common Ground there will be external facilitators (from Rhizome), but this time there may also be some facilitation from the group attending.

It will be a two day meeting, at the fabulous Grow Heathrow again.

Crash space will be available Fri/Sat/Sun and food provided on Sat and Sun. Let us know via spaceforchange[at] if you want crash space.

In a world ruled by spin doctors and greed-mongers science occasionally appears as a clear and present danger.

Looking forward to COP 17 in Durban, South Africa you might want to visit the regular Climate Change blogs posted by the British High Commission in Pretoria -
