Campaign against Climate Change

"Climate change is perhaps the gravest calamity our species has ever  encountered. Its impact dwarfs that of any war, any plague, any famine  we have confronted so far. It makes genocide and ethnic cleansing look  like sideshows at the circus of human suffering." "We need to put  climate change right at the top of the political agenda” it is by far  the biggest threat to humanity. We have to turn this into the primary  political campaign. That means keeping on the streets, keeping up the  demonstrations and putting an enormous amount of pressure on our  politicians." George Monbiot

 

Conversations that matter

This is a blog for us to share and inspire one another on the topic of  Global Climate Change. Here you will find the resources needed to host  events that will encourage and empower your community at home or work to address the environmental challenges of our day. It is hosted by the World Cafe, which offers a method for bringing people together in conversation to  address the big questions of our time. We believe it is through  conversation that we can collectively develop a shared sense of meaning, establish our goals and move toward constructive action.
