Limited Capacity filling up



***Be aware that this is a two-days workshop***

Is choosing to do nothing about climate change really the political statement you want to make to the world? We need to now drive mass-participation in the climate change movement , bringing it in from the fringes of people’s lives (the peripheral)

to the heart of their everyday lives – and making it clear that doing nothing is not an option.
This is about the responsibilities of citizenship- not just of our own cities/ countries/ cultures – but a shared global commitment/ empathy.

We also need to bring in those people on the fringes of our societies (particularly the Global North) to the centre of our movement – reach out to the ‘peripherique’ of Paris – esp. as these communities contain people most closely linked to the frontlines of climate change.



Fait-on vraiment le choix de ne rien faire contre le dérèglement climatique ?
Pour provoquer une participation de masse au mouvement climatique, nous devons replacer le dérèglement climatique au cœur du quotidien des gens. Comment ? En démontrant de manière univoque que ne rien faire n’est tout simplement pas une option. En montrant qu’il est de notre responsabilité collective de citoyens de la planète, et non pas uniquement de celle de nos communes, pays ou autres instances, d’agir dans ce sens. En promouvant un engagement et un devoir d’empathie partagés. Cette thématique vise également à faire de la place, au sein de notre mouvement, à ces populations qui, en marge de nos sociétés, sont aux premières loges du dérèglement climatique (notamment les populations du Grand Nord).
