“Summer Gathering was the most open and welcoming environment to be in. I came by myself, without any experience of campaigning, and left with so much knowledge, having met so many friendly and like-minded people, and confident enough to start up a People & Planet group at my university. I can’t recommend it enough!”
Emily Swain, Kent University People & Planet
Every summer, People & Planet brings students together for a 4 day training event. The Summer Gathering is when we develop our network’s understanding of our campaigns and decide their future, skill them up on activism techniques and share ideas and experience of how to shape the world. In previous years, we’ve covered non-violent direct action, media skills, how to build sustainable activist groups and much more! Make sure you keep an eye out for details of this year’s event!
Go Green Week is the UK’s largest week of student climate action. In 2017 we will draw our Red Lines on our universities, colleges and banks investments in fossil fuels.
It’s people who lead movements, not politicians. It is up to us to create a diverse movement with a clear message: Red Lines are not for crossing. It’s time to decolonise and decarbonise our economies.
Let’s put the voices of affected communities at the heart of the struggle. Let’s work together to expose the fossil fuel industry’s climate lies and human rights abuses. Let’s put a Red Line between us and them.
