CARBON TRADING AND ACTION PLANNING WEEKEND, LONDON, 21/22 MARCH

CLIMATE CAMP 2009:
CARBON TRADING AND ACTION PLANNING WEEKEND
LONDON,  21/22 MARCH

Everything you were gagging to know about carbon trading, and how we can put this new-found knowledge into practice at the G20 and beyond!

Day 1
Workshops and discussions on the problems with carbon trading, with speakers from the Cornerhouse, FERN, Carbon Trade Watch and the World Development Movement. Subjects will include the basics of carbon trading, similarities with the financial crisis, carbon markets and forestry and how emissions trading in the EU paves the way for Kingsnorth and the 3rd Runway.


Day 2
Action planning and trainings. A big chunk of this will be devoted to the Climate Camp in the City on the 1st of April, but it will also deal with our plans for the Summer and Copenhagen, and will include options like speaker training, media training and action planning.


Both days will take place at the new Synergy Centre:  Carlisle Lane SE1 7LG.
A light lunch will be provided on both days and both days will run from 10am to 5pm.
