Climate action in Manchester
19 May 2015

 

Dear [Everyone]

There are many reasons we can be hopeful about tackling climate change – we’ve kept the UK Frack Free for four years, the divestment movement is booming and solar panels are popping up all over the place.

But we know we need to keep David Cameron to his promises on climate change over the next five years, and start building the future we need both locally and globally. It’s a vital time to be part of the climate movement.

So we’re recruiting people across the country to join our Climate Organisers programme. Would you like to develop your campaigning and organising skills and put them into practice to help stop climate change, or do you know someone who might?

Globally, it is the Muslim community that is most affected by our changing climate. That’s whywe’re particularly looking for Climate Organisers to work with MADE in Europe and Manchester’s Muslim community on climate change.

As an Organiser, you would be working with others to mobilise people around key national actions as well as developing home-grown projects in Manchester. Beyond that, it’s up to you. You could help keep fracking out of the North West, hold a conference event to attract new activists or something completely different.

We offer a full package of support through face-to-face and distance training, 1:1 coaching and the option of an accredited certificate in Campaign Organising.

Be at the heart of the action – apply by Friday 22 May.

If the programme isn’t for you but you’d like to be kept in the loop about upcoming plans on climate activism in Manchester plans, please feel free to email me.

Best wishes,

Laura & the Community Activism Team

PS Made in Europe is a Muslim-led movement of young people who want to see our community leading the fight against global poverty and injustice. They are also part of Muslim Climate Action and we’re delighted to be working with them this year.
