Building on the success of the Birmingham COP26 march and digital rally, plus some successful local actions taken at the end of 2021, we invite you to our Climate Festival 18-20th February in Northfield.
Here we will deepen our learning on climate justice, learn vital skills around community organising and have facilitated conversations on what effective climate justice work and solidarity looks like.
The festival will allow us to come together to connect, learn and exchange, share food, have some fun, and, most importantly, TAKE ACTION for climate justice
Please sign up to our different workshops and sessions via the different ticket options.
On the Saturday (19th) we will put our passion and truth into action by having a mini-rally in Princesses Square 3.30-4.30pm. Please join us to spread the message on climate justice!
Is it possible to connect without music and food? The Friday night will end with an open mic and we have a “pay what you feel” dinner for everyone to connect on the Saturday evening (please register for these).
Please register for the event here: https://northfieldclimatefestival.eventbrite.com
*Please note, tickets for individual workshops will go live on Monday 24th 12noon*
Decolonising our Organising Practices
We are making a conscious effort to decolonise our organising practises. We aim to centre marginalised voices, encouraging contributions and participation from people with disabilities, racially/ethnically marginalised people, migrants, refugees, and people of different faiths. If you would like to discuss how you can engage your community or make a contribution, please send us a message! We would love to have these conversations to make sure climate justice work in Birmingham includes and represents those most affected by climate injustice.
We will also endeavour to offer financial remuneration to such contributors as well as people who are unemployed, on low income, or seeking asylum.
Please help us to put on this low-carbon, plastic-free, all-inclusive and family-friendly event by donating to our fundraiser.
Your donations will be spent on organising costs and ensuring that we pay people (especially from marginalised or low income groups) appropriately for their time, creativity, and expertise. Any remaining money will be put towards our larger Summer Climate Festival and further local actions.
Climate Justice for ALL!
