Scottish Climate Justice Movement Assembly

May 28 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

Free

How can we foster a diverse and inclusive movement ecology that recognises our interdependence and the power in our varied tactics? How do we build the collective power we need to realise climate justice, in Scotland and beyond?

You’re invited to join us on the 28th of May in Glasgow to dedicate a day to important conversations around how we, as a movement composed of varied groups, organisations and campaigns, can best work together towards our collective goals. We will create space for you to build new connections and alliances, and learn from others in the movement. The plan for the day is here and we encourage you to add any comments or suggestions, so that the event can be shaped by all of us. The agenda is live and subject to change.

*Booking & Logistics*

Lunch will be provided, so we can sit down together around a good meal. Spaces are limited, please sign up as soon as possible.

The event is largely grant-funded and free for participants, but if you are attending on behalf of a funded organisation who can pay for your attendance, or are able to contribute as an individual, we suggest you make a donation of £20, or whatever you can afford, towards our access fund – https://actionnetwork.org/…/climate-justice-gathering…/. This will be used to make sure the event is as accessible to as many people as possible.

*Accessibility*

Please let us know when you book if you would like to be reimbursed for your travel costs, and if you require accommodation for those travelling from outside the Central Belt. We can also cover childcare costs and provide BSL and/or language interpretation if you let us know in advance.

The rooms that we are using in the Pearce Institute are wheelchair accessible, and there is an accessible toilet. The closest subway station is Govan (3 minutes away).

There will be a quiet room available throughout the day.

We are still in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to make this event as accessible as possible, we ask that, if you are able to, you wear a mask at all times when not eating or drinking. We will also be asking all participants to take and register a Lateral Flow test, dependent on the availability of tests at the time of the event. A full Covid safety protocol will be shared in advance of the event.

If you have any questions or concerns about accessibility please email rona@tippingpointuk.org
