Past Climate Action Network events: 

Fair Energy Campaign Lunch & Learn, Wednesday 11th November, 12:30-13:30

The Citizens UK Fair Energy Campaign is an exciting opportunity to help lead a new campaign at King’s fighting for inclusive climate justice by helping communities switch to fair and green energy suppliers.The Fair Energy team, led by King’s students, are looking to build a team who will help peers and communities around King’s to switch energy suppliers, saving money and cutting carbon emissions in the process. This team will likely be a major component of a nationwide campaign, the aim of which is to put pressure on the Big Six energy suppliers to abandon exploitative pricing policies and offer renewable tariffs. Watch the Lunch & Learn back to find out more about the issue and how you can support the Fair Energy movement. Contact fairenergy@citizensuk.org to join the movement.

Climate Campaigning workshop with Hope for the Future, Thursday 19th November, 10:00-12:00

Hope for the Future is a climate charity which equips communities, groups and individuals across the country to communicate the urgency of climate change with their local politicians. In this training session they will provide you with the skills to build relationships with elected representatives on climate change, including understanding values across the political spectrum, framing ‘asks’ for the best response, and using effective conversation techniques.This will be the first of two events. Next term (date TBC) we will hold a second workshop to help you apply these skills to specific issues in a ‘hackathon’-style event.
