Power Through Paris Workshops
In September 2015, local groups across the world held workshops and teach-ins to build power and get ready for action around the Paris climate talks and beyond.
Momentum is growing to stop the climate change crisis. Political and religious leaders are beginning to get the message that people like you have been voicing for years.
In the lead up the the Paris climate negotiations, hundreds of people around the world took part in “Power Through Paris” workshops to organise for bold action around the UN climate talks and beyond.
Check out the highlights:
Follow up after the Workshop
Your workshop is an opportunity to create positive energy and momentum. Make sure you build on this opportunity by following up in a timely way with participants. Do you have a plan to keep everyone engaged and to take action together?
- Send a follow-up email to your guests with notes on any shared visions, goals, or action plans you generated together. Include information about the next meeting or event and share photos from the event. If there are Facebook or email listserv groups, make sure everyone knows how to access them. You may also want to share links to the workshop handouts or other resources. Be sure to thank everyone for their commitments to continuing the work together.
- Share your experience with us! Tell us about your workshop! You can send us a brief overview of your workshop experience at the following form: www.350.org/ptp-survey
