CAFOD members and supporters are invited to a free one-day training event being put on jointly by Stop Climate Chaos and Practical Action at St. Paul’s Community Centre in Wimbledon Park, London on Saturday, April 6, 2013. The day will run from 10am – 5pm.
Bright Ideas! Local action for global impact on energy and climate change aims to be a useful and engaging way for organisations and their supporters to gain additional skills and knowledge on climate change and energy policy issues. The morning will feature workshops led by expert campaigners on utilising media, building networks and ways to influence politicians. In the afternoon, speakers will provide in-depth briefings on the impact of climate change on food, the green economy, energy efficiency/fuel poverty and the Sustainable Energy for All initiative. In addition, we are also aiming to conduct a Q&A session on preferred lobbying techniques with Secretary of State for International Development Justine Greening or a senior member of her staff. At the end of the day, we will be hosting a drinks reception, giving you an opportunity to network with other like-minded groups and individuals to put your ideas into practice.
