To avoid catastrophic climate change, scientists estimate that at least 80% of fossil fuels need to stay in the ground. Across the Rocky Mountains, communities are standing up to oil, gas and coal interests to say a resounding “NO” to pollution, poisoning and climate destruction.
From May 7th -12th, in Denver, CO, a coalition of national, regional and local organizations will be hosting a Keep It in the Ground Action Camp to build for a stronger climate justice movement in the Rockies.
The camp will focus on campaigns and strategies to keep fossil fuels in the ground – ending the leasing of public lands and waters for drilling and mining; stopping proposed fossil fuel infrastructure and development; and the rapid transition of our existing extraction-based economy to one rooted in justice and sustainability.
This camp will take participants through the tools used in Keep It in the Ground campaigning, including non-violent direct action and strategic communications. Food and basic lodging (camping, or simple dorm-style beds) will be provided for each participant.
There are limited travel scholarships available, please note that on your form if you need travel support.
