Green New Deal UK Organiser Training Weekend

Illustrates the event

Last weekend, like many people, I spent a lot of time on my computer engaged in a Zoom meeting. 60 people came together to meet, discuss, collaborate and learn in order to organise to support the demand for a Green New Deal.

Our hope is to reach beyond the ‘typical’ environmental campaign and ensure that our movement would be diverse and localised. To take the Green New Deal from concept to reality it is imperative that people can understand what it would mean in their community, region or workplace. We have to ensure that we have people from across the country, in big cities, small towns and the countryside, who can co-create the campaign and who bring input and experience we would otherwise be missing.

The Green New Deal Bill we launched on the day of the Global Climate Strike is a response and a tribute to the students and young people in the UK who have played such a critical role in bringing the climate emergency to the attention of policy makers and the public, and who have taken to the streets to call for a Green New Deal.

Even our Parliament agrees – we are facing a Climate Emergency.

This has been long understood by the communities on the frontlines of climate impacts around the world. But while our national politicians say they are waking up to the urgency of the situation, we still aren’t seeing the political action needed to actually match the scale of the crisis.
