CAN! How to beat the fossil fuel lobby and win for all the inhabitants of earth
July 9 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am
Tired of seeing the fossil fuel lobby win? Learn how to run effective campaigns to impact climate policy!
The science on climate change is clear – we need to aggressively cut greenhouse gas pollution while protecting natural landscapes that serve as carbon sinks. However, powerful special interests (e.g. oil and coal companies) are using their political influence to stop this necessary transition to clean energy. What is an ethical person to do?
The good news is that social change activists have created a formula for how to design effective campaigns to win public policy change. The Midwest Strategy Chart is a roadmap for designing the multiple elements of an effective campaign.
John Hickey, who served for ten years as the Missouri State Director for the Sierra Club, will share this strategic tool used by professional organizers across the country. Attendees will learn how to apply the strategy chart to be more effective advocates for climate action!
