On behalf of 350.org and Better Future Project,we invite you to join us for a free two-day Climate Leadership Workshop, sponsored by 350.org and Better Future Project.

The workshops are designed to develop skills and relationships that will let you play a bigger role in our growing movement. You’ll also get ready for upcoming actions such as the action to Shut Down Brayton Point, the Energy Exodus March from Coal to Cape Wind, and get plugged in with fossil fuel divestment campaigns across the state. 

Similar workshops are being held across the U.S. and around the world to build a stronger, more-networked movement to address the climate crisis and advocate for real solutions. Together we’ll work on strategic campaign planning and coalition building, offering practical tools for engaging media, connecting with allies, developing movement strategy and action design, and other critical organizing practices. We will also share lessons learned from experience organizing at many levels – from local events to international campaigns — to see how we can get stronger.

If you’re ready to be a bigger part of the movement in Massachusetts, let us know by filling out this form: docs.google.com/forms/d/1kuDuzSlMki28feR4sPFlnROgL9nHAerrX15Qz2OyBRE/viewform

A coordinator will respond with confirmation and immediate opportunities for you to participate in ongoing campaigns.
