Summer Gathering - 1 - 5 July 2013
Summer Gathering…Where the movement begins
From 1 -5 July 2013 People & Planet hosted the Summer Gathering at an eco-campsite in Oxford.
We had four sunny (ish!) days packed to the brim with outdoor fun, talks, workshops, training, bonfires and tasty food.
Summer Gathering: the student campaigner training camp
All across the country, students are yearning for change. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer and the fossil fuel companies are driving more climate change. This isn’t inevitable. Working with others across the world, we can secure a better future. But only if we plan, learn, and build our movement.
Whether you are at the helm of a large and active student group, or a lone voice on your campus calling out for change, the Summer Gathering is the place for you. Join students from across the country to plan together for the year ahead. Learn how to win your campaigns and map out how to build an unbeatable climate or social justice movement on your campus and across the country.
The Summer Gathering is a masterclass in challenging injustice. It’s where we plan to win. Be there, or you’ll be missing out.
