About this Event
WE MAKE TOMORROW is a half day conference organised in anticipation of the COP28 climate protests that will be taking place around the world later this year.
Bringing together climate justice activists, trade unionists and social justice campaigners, the event will explore questions about how we orientate ourselves towards a more positive future for people and planet in the face of growing inequality, injustice and climate and environmental breakdown.
How can we strengthen links between people and between organisations so that we can help to build a movement capable of forging a just transition at a local and a global level?
Whether new to the movement, or a seasoned campaigner everyone is welcome!
