APR 6

Online workshop for youth climate strikers

6 April 2020

Due to ongoing Covid-19 public health measures this workshop has moved online.

Join this Zoom video conference to learn and explore tactics, principles and strategy to ensure that climate strikes continue and adapt to our new circumstances.

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?

We're splitting the workshop into three segments, so we can have lots of breaks and time to move our bodies away from a screen. Please come to all 3 segments, and please log in 5-10 minutes before the start of the meeting, so we can start right on time.

10:30am–12pm (1.5 hours including a movement break)

How and why we want to grow – dreaming – visioning – future planning

1:30–2:30pm (1 hour)

Working with others – building our power, building allies and networks

4–5pm (1 hour)

How we can reach people: our message and social media.

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