Welcome to the participants

Dear all,

A very warm welcome to all of you! You are a group of 25 people from 9 European countries who joined an exciting and intensive project.

‘All together against climate change’ is – of course – about climate change, but also about the power of media, about informing people, about convincing people, about group work and education.

  • You will learn more than just half-truths and myths about climate change and discover how young people can use different forms of media to campaign for the fight against climate change.
  • You will run these campaigns in your cities – not alone, but with other young people from your organisations.
  • With all your new competencies and experience, you will join Co-camp, the international camp of co-operation in England, to run workshops for people from all over the world.
  • And finally we will publish a handbook together, about your campaigns and how you have developed them, so that other groups can do the same and join the fight against climate change.

That is a lot, but it is also very exciting! Don’t worry, we will take you step by step through the project and are there for you whenever you need our support.

The first steps we are going to take together will take place here, on this online platform.

There will be four modules before the training course:

-       A short ‘pre module’, online now: Get to know each other and this site

-       Module 1, launch February 28th: How do we use media and how do media influence us?

-       Module 2, launch March 15th: Basic introduction to the science of climate change

-       Module 3, launch April 15th: The politics of climate change

2 modules to update each other about the work in your groups will take place after the training course.

We will use a variety of methods: You will watch youtube clips, upload photos and screenshots, read texts (whenever possible in your own language) and sometimes write short texts or comments. You will do some things alone, other together in the team from your organisation.

We expect that you will spend around 3 hours per module – not at once, but coming back from time to time to see new things, comment on posts of others and receive new questions. Some of you will spend less time, others will get fascinated by the topics and spend more time exploring.

Whether you are a fan of online stuff or the things we offer you here or not: Please come back regularly and take part in all modules. That means when we come together in Germany, we all know what is going on and are ‘in the project’ already. We are very much looking forward to this and we hope you are, too!

Enjoy and start exploring.

In Friendship,

Your team; Kit, Kat, Lloyd, Nina, Jiri and Christine
