Training - Climate Campaign Strategy - AYCC QLD
Queensland has a lot of work when it comes to public perception around the urgency and importance of taking action on climate change, yet our communities stand to gain the most by being on the front foot and preparing to lessen our reliance on fossil fuels; get ready for increased intense weather events; and embracing the opportunities of renewable energy. And Queensland is sometimes the strongest bastion for those who think "the climate's always changed / we're doomed anyway / coal is still good for humanity". Let's figure out how to change it!
THIS IS THE TRAINING FOR YOU IF YOU WANT TO...
- Learn how to think strategically about action on climate change
- Get the background info to formulate a killer campaign to shift public opinion on climate justice, or the economics of fossil fuels
- Learn how to get inside the head of a mining executive to figure out what THEY'RE planning to keep fossil fuels viable for as long as possible
- Give yourself the basic tools to be part of our strategic planning processes for youth climate campaigns, in Queensland and around the country!
*Please note: If you're not under 30, this training is not for you! This session has been designed for young climate action and climate justice volunteers in Queensland. You do not need to be from AYCC to attend, as these skills are broadly applicable to campaigning - but we expect you to be playing a role in the youth climate justice movement!*
