17th-18th April 2021
Over the weekend of 17th-18th April, we are running an online gathering to mark the launch of the Health for a Green New Deal campaign.
The weekend will featuring panel discussions on a range of topics related to climate & health justice, sessions on campaigning skills, as well as a special Saturday evening entertainment program!
What topics does the programme cover?
The programme includes panel discussions on a number of topics including: air pollution, environmental racism, global solidarity, green jobs and climate & health movement strategy post-COVID.
Additionally, we are running a number of more interactive sessions focusing on setting up a local Health for a Green New Deal campaign as well as how to use storytelling in your climate & health campaigning.
How will it work logistically?
Zoom details for each of the sessions will be emailed to all those registered at the start of the weekend. Sessions will take place across the Saturday and Sunday during designated slots with breaks in between so that you’re not stuck staring at a screen the whole weekend!
