    Building the mass support needed to win climate justice means engaging our friends, family and peers through conversation. And most of us know all too well how frustrating those conversations can be. Fortunately, learning how to have powerful conversations with confidence is a skill that everyone can learn.

    In this training workshop, we’ll teach you the fundamentals you’ll need to turn arguments into conversations that strengthen relationships, win hearts and minds of others whilst we care for each other as we do the work. 

    This workshop will run for 120 minutes and cover a jam-packed suite of tried and tested techniques that experienced organisers use to build movements.

    Over the course of the training, we’ll dive deep into:

    • The context and strategic purpose of conversations - knowing when and where to use them (and when and where not to).
    • Useful frameworks to help you structure your conversations.
    • Active listening - the core of all good conversations.
    • Multiple opportunities to test your new knowledge in a safe environment.

    Achieving Climate Justice means building a movement across all intersections of society.

    Persuasive and powerful conversations are crucial to our success.

    By the end of this training, you’ll be able to employ active listening and structured conversations techniques, and will have completed the basic practice necessary to take these new skills out into the world and continue building the movement for Climate Justice.

    As we are faced with the profound global consequences of climate change, colonialism and capitalism, it’s crucial that we stay connected and foster a sense of solidarity in our communities.

    In recognizing the growing need for supportive spaces to move through our thoughts and feelings, CJU will be opening up monthly online reflection sessions for people to come together, yarn and be heard in an understanding and caring environment.

    These sessions will be facilitated by the skilled expertise of Linda Selvey and Rod Mitchell, who together share a wealth of experience in holding space for people to navigate complex feelings.

    Linda Selvey is a public health physician and has also been a climate and environmental activist for all of her adult life. She has just retired so that she can devote more of her time to activism. Linda has also been practicing re-evaluation counselling for more than 30 years. When she lived in Perth she led a monthly climate activist support group, and she has also led workshops for climate activists.

    Rod has worked in community development, training, lecturing, trauma counselling and climate advocacy over the past 4 decades. His experience in practicing and teaching co-counselling has been the bedrock for much of his work and a powerful tool for taking on the oppressions that divide us. He leads a weekly co-counselling support group on "care of environment".

    We intend for these sessions to provide you an opportunity to listen, reflect and if you feel comfortable, to share from your own experience. We hope you will join us in putting collective care into practice.

    It’s important to note that these sessions are not intended to replace any professional or personal support you may need or already have in place. Rather they are designed to complement existing resources and serve as an additional means of connection. We encourage participants to continue seeking guidance from mental health professionals, friends, family and other support networks as needed.

    By attending this event you are agreeing to uphold CJUs guiding principles and acknowledge that facilitators reserve the right to remove anyone who may compromise the safety of other attendees.

    CJU101: Climate Justice & Collective Organising is our member induction.

    This is an opportunity for you to learn more about Climate Justice, Collective Organising and of course the Climate Justice Union.

    By the end of this workshop you will have a better understanding of what it means to be a Climate Justice Union member and how to talk about CJU. 

    We’ll talk through our “Big Plan”, including the values and aims of CJU. And most importantly there will be plenty of opportunities for you to meet, talk with and get to know other members of CJU. 

    During the workshop we aim to help you establish relationships with fellow members, develop a clear understanding of our collective values and start to think about what you can do to help achieve them.

    The workshop is held online via Zoom and run for about 2hrs.

    If possible, please ensure you have access to a camera and/or microphone - as this will help to ensure everyone can participate equitably and safely. Let us know if that will be a problem so we can accommodate your needs and access.

    Everyone has a part to play in achieving climate justice, so come along and consider registering a guest to join you.

We acknowledge that we begin our work as The Climate Justice Union on the Boodja (land) of the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We honour the Wadjuk people and their kin in other Nations and Country across these lands and waters, who have always cared for this place and all who lived here.

We acknowledge First Nations Elders past and present, and acknowledge that those of us living here, who came from across the seas, live on land that was taken, stolen. We acknowledge the responsibility that comes with this understanding and that we personally and collectively benefit from this theft.

As such, we all have a responsibility to decolonise ourselves, our lives and work, and to heal the harm these oppressive systems have inflicted.

We are a community union and do not cover you in your workplace. All Climate Justice Union members are also encouraged to join the relevant industrial union. Click here to find your industrial Union.
