About this event
From the Ground Up: Global Gathering for Climate Justice is a space for our movements to come together, strategise, and build power for systemic change.
This November, COP26 was due to take place in Glasgow. To mark this moment, the COP26 Coalition is hosting From the Ground Up - a global gathering providing the space to educate, strategise and co-ordinate, to build power and connect within our global justice movements. Under discussion will be the need for a Global Green New Deal and work towards a global plan of action to create the change we need from the ground up.
Further discussions will be hosted on the topics:
False Solutions to the Climate Crisis
Just Transition and the Role of Trade Unions
How Fossil Fuels get Financed
Feminism and the Climate Emergency
Indigenous Knowledge and Strategies for Resistance
Struggles for Land, Forests, and Oceans
As well as workshops exploring:
How not to burn out as an activist
How to resist mega-projects in your community
How to frame climate justice in campaigning
How to take action during a global pandemic
...and many more.
This Global Gathering is an opportunity for Scottish, UK, European and international climate justice movements to build momentum and capacity, and to connect to broader civil society to build power for system change.
It aims to provide a space to come together in these times of isolation, to connect and share the diversity of struggles and experiences that make our movements so powerful.
The event is free, everyone is welcome to attend. The gathering will be spread throughout the five days to enable activists from all time zones to take part. Interpretation in Spanish and French (upon request), and closed captions for key panels.
