Migrants Organising on Rights & Empowerment (MORE) are organising a series of free online workshops exploring the links between climate justice and migrant justice, in the lead-up to the UN COP26 international climate negotiations in Glasgow this year.
The sessions are open to all migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and folk with experience of the asylum system and started in January 2021 on the last Monday of each month.
With these workshops we aim to support folks from the Scottish diaspora to connect the dots between migrant, racial, and climate justice, to become familiar with ‘climate jargon’, the COP process and relevant legal frameworks, and to access climate organising spaces. We hope these sessions will support migrant-led campaigning in the lead up to COP26.
Here’s an overview of the up-coming sessions
29 March – National level climate policy
26 April – Exploring the links between climate justice, migrant justice & colonialism
31 May – Our demands for COP26 –
28 June – How to get our voice heard at COP26 –
26 July – Local action on climate change – 26 July
27 Aug – Our strategy at COP26 & Next steps – 27 Aug
Each session has an invited guest speaker, and the COP26 Coalition and Tripod are offering logistical and facilitation support for the sessions.
