sustaining the climate movement

18th to 26th April 2020

This training will be run by facilitators from the Ulex Project network.

Building a movement to see this through

More than ever we need to be fighting to win and build a massive movement for climate justice. At a time of growing movement power and significant shifts in public narrative, spaces for reflection and analysis are crucial for the climate justice movement to make the most of the opportunities and to strategise to overcome new challenges.

Climate Justice organising faces high rates of burnout. The scale of the challenge, the emotional impact of the climate reality, and the power of opposition can be overwhelming, depleting, and demotivating.

Having learnt lessons from the crash our movement experienced in the post-COP15 fallout, we now hear more about sustainable activism, regenerative organising and resilience within the climate justice world. But what does this mean in practice? How can our groups and organisations integrate these practices and perspectives effectively? As our movement grows, how will we avoid the failures and errors of the past? How will we build a massive movement that is truly regenerative and resilient enough to see this through?

This training brings together experienced activist trainers who specialise in sustainable activist training. The Ulex Project will bring trainers from the Sustaining Resistance Network and our work on Regenerative Activism. Trainers from the Klima*Kollektiv will bring their methodologies and approaches. And the Roots of Resilience team will share their work on nature-based education and resilience.

Participants should be well-placed to effectively carry the learning and skills back into their organisations and networks. Although participants will learn practices that support their personal resilience, the primary aim of the training is to enable learning and experience to be carried out across the movement.

More details to follow soon!

The Team

Sustaining Resitance Network: The Team will draw on members of the Sustaining Resistance network of trainers that has developed since 2010.

The Klima * Kollektiv is struggling for a society which keeps the ecological balance and offers everyone access to the fundamental ressources. Furthermore, we want to create an economical and participatory system where those values and ideas are possible to develop and exist. Therefore the Klima*Kollektiv works on the three key fields of social change: education, creating alternative structures and debate & action
