Climate Justice and Antifascist Futures – A Spring School for Activism and Academia
Friday, 12 April 2024 - Sunday, 14 April 2024

In Europe and beyond we are currently facing the undermining of already insufficient policies and actions against the climate catastrophe, the massive dying out of species and the garbage crisis. This dynamic coincides with a rise of right wing politics that work on the delegitimization and defamation of climate justice advocacy alongside racist, xenophobic, anti-feminist, anti-LGBTIQ*-policies and the preservation of existing national and geopolitical inequalities. 

We want to build coalitions between climate justice groups and academia to fight these developments by inventing strategies between media, activism and academia. We invite activists, academics and journalists to participate in a weekend to work on collaborative approaches and collective organizing. Participants are invited to join in one of te following workshops: Narratives and Intersections of Delegitimization: Documentation, Analysis, Response, How to make a case for climate?, and Media studies and climate catastrophe.

Date: Friday, April 12th 2024 to Sunday April 14th 2024

Place: Bochum
