Building a climate and just transition movement in Europ

From many different organisations and networks in Europe, we invite you to a meeting in Bonn on 5 and 6 June to discuss climate justice and the building of a just transition movement in Europe.

We start from the example resistance in Copenhagen and the spirit of climate justice. We will discuss:

How to carry the spirit of Cochabamba forward;

Building a climate and just transition movement in Europe, including actions in Octber and December;

The alternative Europe we want;

Mobilising for Cancun.

We will meet at Sitzungssaal, LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn, Colmantstr. 14-16, 53115 Bonn from 9 to 12.30 on Saturday to discuss global issues, and then go on the climate demonstration. On Sunday we will meet from 10 to 5 to discuss more European issues.

This is an open meeting, and you do not have to book ahead. But if you are coming, it will help if you reply to Alexis Passadakis on passadakis@gmx.net. Please tell us your name and organisation, and any translation you will need. The main language will be English, but we will try to arrange translation if you tell us beforehand. So if you would like to attend and need translation, please let us know to ensure your full participation is possible. This meeting should also help to prepare ourselves for the European Social Forum in Istanbul.
