Climate Campaign: what next.

I am told that every time I mentioned the inspiration and professionalism of the climate camp during my Conference Speech one prominent member of the Green Party tutted loudly.

Well the Climate Camp is the real deal, time is urgent and we have to be serious about making the chance...green politics is about planetary survival not personal career.

People get ready!

The Climate Camp on its own didn't stop climate change - but it's part of a growing social movement that can! Come and take the next stepsforward at the upcoming UK-wide meeting on Nov 3-4 in Oxford. Everyoneis welcome, whether you came to the camp, or were simply inspired by it. The Climate Camp had 4 key aims: education, direct action, sustainableliving, and building a social movement to collectively tackle climatechange and build a better world. Regional meetings have been happeningup and down the country, and in Oxford we will meet to collectivelyshare all our ideas for taking our aims further.
