Stop Climate Chaos

Speak out for climate justice at the WDM speaker tour

If you don’t want to wait until December to speak out for climate justice, check out the WDM ‘Africa Demands Climate Justice’ speaker tour.

This is a rare opportunity to hear from two activists who seldom visit the UK. Both speakers work on the front line of the fight for environmental justice in South Africa, and as such are well placed to give campaigners in this country a sense of the urgency around the UN talks in Durban in December.

What do we want from the Durban climate talks?

Calling for Climate Justice

The African Climate Connection is all about local groups connecting with each other and the climate talks.

This Autumn, supporters of many organisations in the Stop Climate Chaos coalition are lobbying MPs to act for climate justice and show international leadership at the climate talks in Durban.

This work builds on a year in which local networks have been lobbying their MPs to (alongside other political asks) act on climate justice.

Draft budget fails to adequately fund climate change action

Monday 26th September 2011

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland is disappointed at the failure to adequately tackle climate change in the draft Budget.

On Wednesday 21st September, the Scottish Government published its Draft Budget for 2012-13 along with their Spending Review which outlines priorities over the next three years.

African Climate Connection

26 November - 3 December

In the run up and during the first week of the UN Climate talks in Durban, South Africa, grassroots groups connected with each other and with the climate talks at African-themed events around the UK.

Resources for your African Climate Connection

We’ve got all sorts of things to help you organise your event, from step-by-step guides and template materials, to the resources you’ll use at the event itself.

Spread the word about your African event

Get other local groups involved

The single most effective thing you can do to get a big crowd along to your event is to get lots of local groups involved in the planning and organising (more tips in our quick guide to making connections - in pdf).

You can also send invitations to those that aren’t involved in the planning and ask them to circulate the information to their members. All it needs to be is a short email outlining the details.

Video updates from the climate talks

How better to connect with what’s happening at the international Climate talks than by watching a video from those at the talks themselves?

We’ll have a few options for you to connect your local event with the international negotiations:

Climate film suggestions

Climate-related films are great for getting people switched on to climate change. We’ve suggested long climate-related films that can form the focus of your event, as well as shorter ones that can be accompanied by other films or activities.

Short films

What have we achieved in the last 20 years? Check out our animated video about all that we've achieved since 1992 because people like you took action. If you'd like a slower, downloadable version to show at your event, please get in touch.

Mmm... African Recipes

We’ve done a bit of searching for African recipes (and got very hungry in the process!). Here's just a tiny selection of what's out there, but do let us know if you’ve got any delicious African recipes that we should add. Enjoy!
