*Please only come to this training if you have already been to a Green New Deal Rising welcome call*

This event has been moved from 16th November.

Our plan is to cause widespread disruption to the political system and force politicians to choose a side.

We’ll be there wherever they go to challenge them, pressure and expose them and get them on the record.

At a public talk, constituency event, fundraising dinner or at their office. Whenever they show their face we’ll be there. We’ll challenge them to be brave and back the Green New Deal bill. We’ll get them on the record and ask them - are you with us or against us? And if they refuse to back the bill - we’ll shame them for being a climate delayer. We’ll organise to get rid of them at the next election.

Publicly challenging politicians is a tried and tested tactic used by social movements across the world. It works because it puts politicians on the spot, makes them uncomfortable and forces them to explain themselves on the record. Either they back the Green New Deal bill (great!) or they are forced to explain why they’re a climate delayer.

Come along to this training to get the skills and confidence you need to pull of a 10/10 politician challenge! Whether you have a challenge booked in already or want to prepare for when there's one near you, everyone is welcome to this training.

After you've registered, you'll get an email with a Zoom link for the call.
