Summer Gathering - the student campaigner training camp

Where the movement begins The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer and the fossil fuel companies are digging us into climate crisis. 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.

Fear not, the Summer Gathering is where we start to make all the world’s problems go away…

Summer Gathering - June 2014.

In 2014 we hosted a fantastic Summer Gathering. The first part of this epic training festival was hosted by Grow Heathrow, the community fighting airport expansion and showing us how to build future awesomeness now. We shared campaign ideas, built essential activist skills, enjoyed bonfires, wood-fired pizzas and shared the company of the local activist legends.

For the second part of the event, we teamed up with The Spark, to put on a tonne of rad workshops and build connections with a super-coalition of truly great groups and individuals. The People & Planet contingent snoozed the nights away at the nearby Common House, where the good times and summer camping vibes continued.
