Building Power for System Change – Final Session: Movement building for Climate Justice

Next year will see huge battles over recovery packages, economic reactivation and attempt to maintain the status quo. These battles will determine whether we deepen the state of permanent crisis to the point of no return or lay the foundations to guarantee everyone the right to a dignified life and achieve climate justice. Given the immense resistance of political elites, and the inertia of the status quo, progressive social movements need to rapidly build significant power and put vigorous energy into developing collective visions. In this closing session of From The Ground Up we will lay out the next 12 months of escalating action, grounded mobilisation and hope.
