The Paris climate talks could be a turning point for the climate movement — if we push for it. Around the world people are organising for bold and ambitious mobilisations. Now is the time to get involved and show our governments that we’re not going to wait any longer.
Momentum is growing to stop the climate change crisis. Political and religious leaders are beginning to get the message that people like you have been voicing for years.
With over 350 divestment commitments and counting, Keystone XL stopped in its tracks and 400,000 people on the streets of New York last year, momentum is on our side. Every new campaign, every new connection, ever new group creates momentum and we are carrying this momentum to the climate change talks in Paris — and beyond.
This November and December will see mass mobilisations and acts of civil disobedience in Paris, and around the world, to signal to governments that we are ready to take the lead and take decisive action to mitigate the climate crisis.
But to change everything we need to organise. That means getting together, sharing ideas and making plans.
Now is the time to get started.
Let’s build momentum together into these historic mobilisations by making Paris a turning point. While we expect talks to fall predictably short of what justice and physics require, we can use Paris as an opportunity to build momentum, forge new alliances and learn together.
The “Power Through Paris” workshops are an important moment in these ambitious plans. Big and beautiful actions don’t just happen, they grow from thousands of seeds planted and nurtured through workshops and trainings like these. Now is your chance to get involved early and make these actions effective and powerful.
