Last month, we helped organise an amazing live-stream on how to dismantle the fossil fuel industry’s hold on advertising, sponsorship and influence in politics. Moderated by climate justice organiser and trainer Talissa, the event saw contributions from Teresa from Fossil Free Culture NL, Mattina from BP or not BP?, and Noëlie from the Gastivists Collective.
Missed it? Don’t worry. You can watch a recording of the event online and learn more about these activists organising for a #FossilFreeRevolution.

The courses take place between the 24th and 29th of May, find a full timetable here.
If you’re focused on planning a campaign or an action but are stuck on an issue or would like to get feedback from experienced activists, use the form below to join our Campaign Surgery, where we give you access to the collective knowledge, links, and expertise of our broad network.
We’ll bring together experienced people in the field to draw on their wealth of knowledge and help answer any burning questions you might have.
