For the past decade there has been debate about whether Climate Change is real. Now the reality of the threat has finally been acknowledged, the debate has started to move on to what we should do about it. This workshop will begin with a brief and basic introduction to Climate Change, before moving on to explore critical viewpoints on what we need to do about it. Will we discuss questions such as:
• Can ‘Eco-footprinting’ help?
• Is Carbon Offsetting a Con?
• How can we work collectively?
This workshop will explore the possibilities and limitations of individual action, and will offer information on how you can get involved in campaigning. It will give you a broad understanding of Climate Change and how it affects other struggles for social change, and hopefully inspire you to do something about the biggest challenge of the 21st century.
