Background to this meetingâ€¦
Since last November we’ve been building a movement for anyone who cares about climate change or social justice. The first Climate Camp in Ireland happened this August 15thâ€“23rd, in Co. Offaly, where we created a space to meet, live, learn and take direct action together.
We pulled it off peopleâ€¦ all who envisioned, inspired, planned, met, worked, participated, built, laughed, cooked, sang, discussed and took direct action, well done! It was all worth it. 300 people, 9 days of workshops, 7 enormous banners, 6 perfect compost loos, over 30 radio interviews, 27 delicious sustainable meals, simultaneous actions at all three peat-fired powerstations, 100s of bags of milled peat returned to the bogâ€¦ â€¦all impossible without you! People’s response during the go-round at the final plenary were great. The camp got a phenomenal amount of media coverage for its size, all of it was balanced and much of it was sympathetic.
But it wasn’t just about a 9 day camp.
Join us building a climate justice movement that can stop the promotion of false solutions in Copenhagen and create the real solutions we want at home.
Now we’re moving on to discuss where we go from here, the climate summit in Copenhagen and how we can build the alternatives in our own local areas. Now is the time to get involved and help shape this movementâ€¦ join us at local meeting or our next all-Ireland gathering this September 26th in Dublin. More practical details of the gathering will follow. If you’d like to offer a workshop for kids, a workshop for everyone, offer to cook or offer to co-facilitate at this gathering please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
