European action training to resist fossil fuels: 6-9 June near Luxembourg
Are you ready to take concrete action for the climate? This is the place for you. Apply to join the Disrupt Fossil Finance Action Training and learn how to stand up to the power of the fossil fuel industry across Europe.
Young people across the world are striking to demand bold action to keep fossil fuels in the ground and stop climate breakdown. They are calling for our solidarity, and for us to take action that is commensurate to the threat.
We’re responding to this call by organising a series of Disrupt Fossil Finance Action Trainings – mass trainings for climate action.
If you’re ready to take bold action, great: get involved! Become one of the hundreds of new climate defenders which we aim to train with the skills needed to effectively organise and disrupt the fossil industry – and the financial institutions bankrolling fossil fuel projects.
Whether it’s civil disobedience, writing social media posts, supporting legal teams, talking to the press or cooking food, all these roles are essential to creating the change we need.
At the first training we will take action together to disrupt the financial flows which fuel the fossil industry.
We’ll learn about the finance industry and how it supports fossil fuel development. We’ll discuss how we can effectively and collectively demand them to change. We’ll share stories and experiences of effective organising we have been involved in or seen in the past.
We’ll connect and train, and decide together on a follow up date to organise distributed actions in our communities.
Apply to participate!
We’re now recruiting of the first Action Training. The meeting is open to anyone anywhere in Europe, and will take place 6-9 June in or near Luxembourg.
Apply through the form if you want to be involved.
