• 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.

Want to start a SCNCC chapter?

David Klein

Here are some rough ideas:

If you encounter someone who agrees with you or expresses similar perspectives, then you can ask that person for a one-on-one conversation to determine the extent of your agreement and how you might be able to work together.

Then follow-up to see if that person is willing to start a chapter with you. Don't be too ambitious in the beginning. The level of activity would be based on what you can agree on. It might take a few long meetings to define and determine what that is; this is to be expected. These interactions also provide an opportunity to teach each other about the state of the climate, local issues, capitalism, its injustices, and why it is the fundamental barrier to survival. This process can then be iterated to draw in more members.
