Everyday, people feel the worsening effects of climate change as the world’s temperature continues to rise. Our leaders have done little to nothing, leaving the planet undefended against the worsening effects of climate change.

From August 28th — 30th, Greenpeace is offering a 3-day series of workshops to equip your climate activist toolbox so that you can take action and defend your planet!

A camp near Edmonton, Alberta will provide informational sessions on the tar sands and climate change, and workshops on non-violent direct action, affinity groups, banner making, media, art and activism, action planning and more.

There is something for everyone and the camp is a great way for the new and experienced activists to learn new skills, hone techniques and share experiences with like-minded people.

Suggested donation for the weekend is $20 but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Rides will also be available from Edmonton.
