What does 'Climate Emergency' mean in South Africa? What do we feel about it? How best can we cope with it, together?
The African Climate Alliance will convene this Open Space offered to Cape Town's climate activist community to take stock of our strengths as a collective and share expertise and ideas. Two days to frankly analyse our local context and lay the foundations of a wider intercultural network that could trust each other to work together in the face of crises such as Day Zero, the KZN floods or Cyclone Idai. A gathering that could enable formation of a coalition with common priorities to pool scarce resources to lobby government, business, education and media more effectively.
Hosted by experienced Open Space facilitator Sam Pearce, Masters in Diversity Studies (UCT) and imminent completer of Africa Clockwise (a 6 year continental trek with her family in the Big Green Truck running on WVO) with her Diversatile team including Earl Mentor of Peace Jam and Yandiswa Mazwana of the eMzantsi Carnival community-building project. Partners and venue tbc.
Please note, this Open Space has been postponed until Janary due to the Big Green Truck being unavoidably delayed in Durban (2 months in garage and counting...)
