We want to hear from you! We hope you will share your thoughts on the thorny question of “How do we maintain morale so that people who are already “in” the movement don’t drift away/leave in despair?”
What works for you? What works for your friends? What doesn’t work? Tell us all!
What are we doing with this information? Well, every issue of Manchester Climate Monthly will have a page of people’s thoughts on issues around “movement-building”. Topics will include – well, if you’re interested, scroll down for some examples!
PS. PMT #3 – success! Thanks to all who have helped so far!
Probable order of questions.
March – How do we get more people (especially ones who don’t look like us; white, middle-class, child-free) involved in the “climate movement”?
April – How do we attract back people who were involved but have become burnt out,/
disenchanted/engaged in other things.
May – What are the particular difficulties groups trying to tackle “climate change” face?
June – What do people need (skills, knowledge, other stuff) in order to stay involved in the “climate movement”?
July – What lessons can we learn from other movements (local or elsewhere, present or past)
August – How do we make sure we learn and share (the right lessons) from our successes and failures?
