Training in #Manchester on #divestment 11 March

11-marchFrom March 4th to April 1st, 350.org and People & Planet are running creative action and media trainings in 10+ UK cities, ahead of the Global Divestment Mobilisation and local elections this May.

The fossil fuel industry have been driving the climate crisis and delaying action on climate change for decades. That’s why from 5th-13th May, people everywhere are coming together for the Global Divestment Mobilisation.

Now’s the time to get organised, grow our power, and demand action on the climate crisis – get skilled up to take action for divestment in your community!

WHERE? Central Manchester, TBC
WHEN? 11am-4pm, Saturday 11th March

For three years, the divestment campaign in the UK has been challenging the power of the fossil fuel industry, but now, in 2017, the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Climate change has already started to ravage communities across the world. We’re also seeing the industries responsible fighting back – desperately cling onto power and sacrificing our future in the name of profit.

Trainings are open to all, no matter your campaigning experience or involvement in divestment. If you have any questions get in touch with ellen@350.org.
