A conference organised by the Trade Union Group of Campaign against Climate Change. Open to all trade unionists and environmental activists.
Saturday 20th September 2014 London Metropolitan University
For a future that doesn’t cost the earth
Timed to coincide with the UN climate talks in New York and the New York “People’s Climate March”, this conference will have a strong international theme with links to participants on the New York march and speakers from Climate Jobs campaigns in other parts of the world. It will also launch the third edition of the “One Million Climate Jobs” booklet which now has additional sections, including one on alternatives to fracking. This will be a major event for discussing how we move the campaign forward and will outline plans for the national “Time to Act on Climate Change!” mobilisation in London on 7 March 2015 and the Paris demonstrations prior to the crucial COP talks in December 2015.
