• Welcome to the System Change Not Climate Change Community Forum. The Forum's goal is to promote exchange of information, discussion, and debate among ecosocialists and other activists who share our belief that capitalism is driving climate change and that a radical international grassroots movement can stop it.

Call for Workshops

People’s Climate Summit

Bonn, Germany, November 3-7, 2017

Climate justice needs your contribution!

/We are looking for contributions to the workshop program of the
People's Climate Summit /

In November 2017, thousands of delegates and climate activists from all
over the world will be traveling to Bonn for the 23rd UN climate change
conference (COP23). The COP23 Presidency is held by Fiji, an island
nation that will be strongly affected by climate change. The logistics
of the conference are being handled by Germany,

industrial nation and one of the crucial CO2 emitters. Aunique
opportunity for us to speak out for climate justice!

One thing is certain: the time window in which global warming can be
limited to 1.5 degrees is closing fast. To achieve this goal, we need to
transform our society into one that is based on caring for the planet
and our fellow humans - rather than on exploitation.

We will be gathering in Bonn at the People’s Climate Summit
<https://pcs2017.org/en/> from November 3 to 7 to move our struggles for
a just and ecological society forward. Three central evening panels are
planned for the weekend of November 3 to 5; full days of workshops are
scheduled for November 6 and 7. Our conference will be a place of
encounter and communication designed to inspire and strengthen our work
for climate justice.

For the workshop program, we are looking for contributions focusing on
realizing social and ecological transformation, such as:


ecological agriculture and alternative trade mandates, Care
Revolution and freedom of movement, sustainable transportation,
renewable energy, solidarity economy, de-growth and Solidarity Cities


global struggles for climate justice; struggles against
overexploitation of natural resources and nuclear power


networking and practical support for climate justice initiatives


events linking different issues and movements

We're welcoming creative formats (participatory methods, theater, etc.).
As of August 15, you can submit your proposal for a workshop on a
registration form <https://pcs2017.org/en/workshops-en/registration/>.
The submission deadline is September 17.

The maximum number of workshops is limited due to space constraints. We
want to ensure that our conference presents various perspectives. We
will therefore be taking gender and other orientation points into
account when selecting the workshops.

See you in Bonn!
