Friends of the Earth: Community Climate Action - Practitioners Training Programme

Call for Youth Workers & Community Workers to Join Us

This residential weekend training will equip Community and Youth Work practitioners to support young people and communities, making their voices heard for equitable climate action.

More information:

Friends of the Earth, with support from Community Work Ireland (CWI), the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) and the National Women’s Council (NWC), are joining forces to deliver an innovative programme upskilling youth work and community work practitioners to play a vital role in embedding social justice in the transition to a decarbonised and climate resilient future.

Over three days, participants will explore the intersections between social and climate justice, diving deep into several essential issues for local climate justice and a just transition, including:

  • Strengthening personal resilience/emotional capacity in the face of climate crisis.
  • Building powerful and inclusive participatory democracy.
  • Fostering collective local resilience in our food, energy and economic systems.
  • Supporting justice and solidarity in the transition locally, nationally and globally.
