The European Assembly for Climate Justice takes place in Brussels from 26th to 29th November, 2010.
The latest programme information, practical information, and venues are now available.
Join us in Brussels for 4 days of debate, discussion, planning, films, cultural events, and action.
In November and December 2010, the UN climate conference “COP16″ will be held in Cancún, Mexico. There is a real risk that these talks will be used by rich industrialized countries, multinational companies and international financial institutions such as the World Bank, to divide up and privatise what is left of our atmosphere, and impose their false solutions such as agrofuels, nuclear power, GMOs, carbon offsetting and the inclusion of forests in carbon markets.
In Belgium and across Europe, we face our own problems regarding climate and social justice: the risk of a new generation of coal and nuclear power plants, dangerously weak national climate policies, the harsh austerity measures being pushed as a response to the economic crisis instead of a “just transition” to new sustainable forms of production and consumption.
Activists from environmental and social movements from across Europe will be gathering in Brussels from 26th to 29th November to share ideas, experiences and visions on climate and social justice in Europe.
The event is open to everyone, and there is no cost to participate in the assembly.
The assembly is inspired by the call made by La Via Campesina for “Thousands of Cancuns” during the negotiations in Cancun. It is being organised by European and Belgian environmental and social movements including Friends of the Earth, Climat et Justice Sociale, Climate Justice Action Belgium/Climate Action Camp Belgium and La Via Campesina.
And we’re still looking for groups and individuals who can help us organising the event: contact email@example.com if you’d like to help out.
