Against Climate Change Trade Union conference on Saturday 13th March, 2010.

Dear all,

This is advance notice of the Third Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union conferenceon Saturday 13th March, 2010.

Our third conference will be following on from the successes of the previous events. At a time of growing economic uncertainty and a worsening environmental situation, the argument for a strategy of fighting for Green Jobs and urgent action on the Climate Emergency has never been clearer.

This conference will bring together campaigners and Trade Unionists to discuss how best to fight against Climate Change following the Copenhagen conference. We will bring together the activists who have campaigned around the Vestas occupation, with those who built the demonstrations around Copenhagen.

Scientists and activists will discuss the latest climate science, as well as the fall out from the Copenhagen conference.

With the launch of the CCC's pamphlet for 1,000,000 Climate Jobs, we will be giving space to Trade Unionists campaigning over the issue and help arm people with the ideas and arguments to carry the campaign further.

In particular, we'll be trying too allow delegates as much time and space as possible to be part of the discussions.

The conference is scheduled for Saturday 13 March 2010. Venue to be confirmed.

Please make a note in your diaries now!

Treasurer, Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union group
