This week's report from the IPCC makes a resounding call for action across all sectors of society, heightening the urgent need to broaden and diversify the climate movement.
SO LET'S GET TO WORK
As part of Global Power Shift, Campaign Against Climate Change and Power Shift UK are working together to bring groups and individuals across the UK together to share stories, campaigns and ideas for action, and to challenge some of our assumptions about diversifying the movement. Along with a range of inspiring speakers the weekend will have lots of dedicated Open Space time scheduled for you to share your stories and ideas for campaigns and actions, and to leave feeling more confident about broadening outreach to your communities and networks.
Asad Rehman - Friends of the Earth
George Barda - Occupy London/Reclaim the Power
Siobhan Grimes - Operation Noah and Climate Rush
Chris Church - Low Carbon Communities Network
Ian 'KMT' Solomon - May Project Gardens

In addition Suzanne Dhaliwal (UK Tar Sands Network) and Liam Barrington Bush (solidarity activist/ journalist/facilitator in social change) will also be hosting a closed 4 hour group workshop for 12 participants focussing on ‘Re-centering Our Movement’.
