Climate Justice Action Network meeting in Ostrava (16-18 Nov 2018)

Dear people,

To all of you who organise against social injustices and natural destruction, right where you live as well as across borders: you are welcome to join the next meeting of the Climate Justice Action Network (CJA) in Ostrava, Czech Republic from 16-18 Nov 2018.


1.) What’s the meeting about?

2.) Practical issues and registration form

1.) What’s the meeting about?

CJA is an international (mainly European) grassroots movement that connects climate camps, divestment campaigns, mass actions of civil disobedience and other struggles. We meet to share our skills and to reflect, we support and inspire each other. It’s the first time a CJA meeting will take place in Eastern Europe and we are especially looking forward to new groups from this region to join us.

This is YOUR space. So we ask you to let us know which issues you would like to learn about and exchange, so we can include them in the agenda.

*Talking points that were already contributed*

– How can we develop the the Turning the Tide campaign further? The idea is to organise a long-term mobilisation, building up in 2019 and culminating in an international wave of actions in 2020, when masses of people will block pipelines and airports, protest factory farms or deforestation. The mobilisation will connect small groups and big mass actions and make our struggles visible as one campaign for climate justice. Read more here: http://by2020weriseup.net/

– How do we deal with the fact that right-wing governments are taking over in more and more countries, be it Austria, Hungary, German federal states? What does mean for the climate movement?

*Other possible topics*

How to not lose hope in a pessimist world – preventing activist burn-out

– What do we do when we win? What future do we want?

Cutting edges between the feminist, climate justice, decolonization and human rights movement

Effective teams, communication and feedback; creative activism..
