To end fossil fuel extraction in a fair way, we need to organise for a just transition. This panel with trade unionists from the North East of Scotland will provide an opportunity to ask what is practically needed to achieve a just transition.
The Best Workshop
INEOS, owned by Jim Ratcliffe, one of the UK's richest men, is the worst company you've never heard of. Scotland's biggest climate polluter, INEOS, produces mountains of plastic waste, toxic chemicals, and wants to frack Scotland. Climate Camp may be on the road to INEOS' Grangemouth oil refinery in 2023: join this workshop and help us crack Scotland's biggest baddie.
Have you ever been confronted by a climate denier, but weren’t sure how to explain the science behind the climate crisis? Has anyone ever told you that climate action will be too expensive, and you didn’t know how to debunk their claims effectively? This training will teach you the basics of climate science in an accessible way, and help you communicate it confidently.
Most of us recognize that addressing the climate crisis will involve significant changes to the ways in which we produce and consume energy, but what does that look like beyond a technological shift? Let's discuss how we might begin to view energy differently, considering how energy systems that embody ideas such energy democracy, decommodification, and commoning might form the bedrock of a socially- and ecologically-just, climate-stable future.
What's Land got to do with climate justice? More than you think: Landownership in Scotland is one of the most unequal in Europe, which is often justified by rewilding and carbon offsetting initiatives. But the impacts on local communities are often negative and it's questionable whether these initiatives help. This workshop gives you the facts on unequal landownership and access is in Scotland, how this hurts communities, social justice, and genuine efforts to solve the climate crisis.
We all recognise that climate change requires systems change, but what does this mean? Capitalism is killing us: the pursuit of economic growth at all costs is costing us our future. Join us to explore new narratives of degrowth, calling for a radical transformation towards a just, sustainable and convivial society where we can all live better with less. What does degrowth mean for us here in Scotland, both as a form of local resistance to the status quo and as a politics of global solidarity?
There are many reasons why our movements are not as effective as they need to be. In this workshop we will explore what's blocking us from building the powerful movements we need to meet the multiple interlocking crises that we face. We'll explore what's stopping us including feelings of despair and grief, our self-limiting beliefs about power and capacity to collaborate effectively and address conflict to build the powerful movements we want to see, and we'll briefly look at some tools for buil
