The meeting on 25th January will cover:

  • Our positive stories of non-violent protest and direct action by a coalition of Southern people’s movements, Northern climate activists and non-governmental organisations.
  • How we developed a deeper understanding of climate justice and committed to say ‘yes’ to Earth Rights and Human Rights and ‘no’ to fossil fuels and carbon trading.
  • What we in Sheffield can do to develop resilient communities and work in solidarity with people from the Global South, for example, learning from the leadership shown by Bolivia.
