Beyond individual action – pushing for climate justice
Saturday, 9.11. 9:30-12:30

How can we get even more (young) people to act in the face of the climate emergency? And how can we take our struggle for climate justice to the next level?
With this in mind we attended a training with people from all over Europe called „Climate beyond Individual Action!“.
And now – back in Austria we want to share our learnings and the skills we gained with all of you. Methods, tools and new insights, from different places in Europe, all serving one purpose: pushing for climate justice!
