UKWIN Campaign Workshop
17/10/2015 @ 10:30 - 17:00
UKWIN CAMPAIGN WORKSHOP
This Campaign Workshop is intended to bring anti‐incineration (and anti‐biomass, and pro‐zero waste) campaigners together to compare notes and to engage in strategic thinking. This is part of a wider process intended to help enable the movement to shape the (local, national, and European) direction of travel, focussing not just on successfully opposing incineration but also on positively bringing about more sustainable resource management and other environmental and social improvements. The Workshop will include sessions on:
• Sharing campaigning experiences and strategies ‐ Including understanding who the decision makers are, and what triggers they respond to, and obtaining and making effective use of environmental information.
• Positive alternatives to incineration ‐ Including an overview of movements and groups working to bring about alternatives to incineration.
• Bringing about lasting change ‐ Including working with local communities and others to change opinions and behaviour in relation to resource use / waste management.
Places are limited, and booking is essential. No charge for attendance, and lunch is free, but financial donations are welcome. UKWIN can offer some financial support for travel expenses in certain circumstances (if interested please request a Travel Pot Application Form).
