From the Ground Up: Global Gathering for Climate Justice

This November, COP26 should have taken place. To mark this occasion, the COP26 Coalition is hosting From the Ground Up – a global gathering that will be a space to educate, activate and strategise.

We will discuss 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.

From the Ground Up: Global Gathering for Climate Justice will host discussions on
O False Solutions to the Climate Crisis
O Just Transition and the Role of Trade Unions
O How Fossil Fuels get Financed
O Feminism and the Climate Emergency
O Indigenous Knowledge and Strategies for Resistance
O Struggles for Land, Forests, and Oceans

as well as workshops on
O How not to burn out as an activist
O How to resist mega-projects in your community
O How to start a community garden
O How to frame climate justice in campaigning
O How to take action during a global pandemic
and many more.

This Global Gathering is an opportunity for Scottish, UK, European and international climate movements to build momentum and capacity, and to connect to broader civil society to build power for system change.

The event is free, everyone is welcome to attend. The gathering will be spread throughout the five days to enable activists from all timezones to take part. We will provide translations in Spanish and French , or closed captions for key panels.
