Event description
Join Freedom Challenge 2020 workshop on how to organise a team of Climate Justice advocates around you!

About this Event

Human rights are as much under threat as the environment when it comes to climate change. It’s why within Freedom Challenge 2020 we’ll be “Shouting out for Climate Justice”

To make that action effective and powerful we are hosting on and offline workshops with some of New Zealand and the Pacific’s best youth climate justice advocates. They’ll be offering insights and knowledge on how together we can better stand up for the rights of this planet and the people on it. Workshops will include creative and practical ways to get involved, build support, and ignite action!

Join Sophie Handford in person or via zoom to discuss Organising a team of climate justice advocates around you.

About the facilitator

Sophie Handford co-founded the School Strike 4 Climate Movement in Aotearoa last year, alongside an awesome team of youth. She is also the Paekakariki - Raumati Ward Councillor on the Kapiti Coast District Council. Her dream is that we can all truly recognise the importance of co-existing with nature and our planet through understanding that the destruction of Earth means the destruction of us too. Justice for the planet and holding indigenous knowledge at the centre of this - climate justice, means a better future for generations to come. This conversation is one she has become very passionate about as this moment in time as absolutely crucial.
