People’s Summit for Climate Justice (Nov. 7-10)

Event Summary

Bringing together the climate justice movement to discuss, learn and strategise for system change.

Event Details

From the 7-10th November 2021, as world leaders meet to discuss our future, the COP26 Coalition will host The People’s Summit for Climate Justice.

The decisions made at COP26 will shape how governments respond (or not) to the climate crisis. But justice won’t be handed to us by world leaders or delivered by corporations. Only we can imagine and build the future that works for all of us. The solutions that we need already exist and are being practiced, but governments lack the political will to act. Indigenous and frontline communities have known the solutions for centuries.

On 7-10th November, we’re organising the People’s Summit as an alternative to business as usual of false solutions and inaction at the COP negotiations. The People’s Summit is a global convergence space for movements, campaigns and civil society – from indigenous struggles to trade unions, from racial justice groups to youth strikers. Join us in imaging our future, combining our knowledge and building the movement for climate justice from the ground up.

We’ll discuss the injustices we are currently facing, imagine the future we want to build, and strategise how we can get there.

MULTIPLE CRISES: The intersecting injustices we face today

VISIONS FOR THE FUTURE : The world we want to build

STRATEGIES AND TACTICS: How to we create the change we need

THE MORE THAN HUMAN WORLD: Transforming our relationships

We have brought together hundreds of submissions to host interactive workshops, panel discussions, strategy sessions, artistic and cultural events, constituency assemblies and more.
