Climate Changemakers

Dudley CVS is collaborating with local social enterprises to engage over 500 local people in climate action over the next 3 years (see our News post). Dudley People’s School for Climate Justice will make it easier for people to connect and collaborate, learn from each other, and take action for people, planet and the future.

If you enjoy bringing people together in your community, school or college, and want to take action which cares for people, planet and the future, we’d love to hear from you.

We have an amazing opportunity for hundreds of local people to share their ideas, skills and knowledge to respond to the climate and ecological crisis. We’re connecting neighbours, artists, learners, designers, tea makers, tinkerers, researchers, crafters, gardeners, quiet activists and more to learn together, connect with nature and take action.

Dudley People’s School for Climate Justice is inviting 15 people to become Stewards in 2024.

Stewards will enhance offerings through the School being made by local artists and designers, by supporting local people of all ages and backgrounds to co-design their own learning journeys and collaborative action.

We’re not particularly looking for people already active in the climate or environmental space, we’d simply love to hear from people who:

  • are curious
  • see value in people learning from each other
  • would like to increase connection with nature and use nature’s guidebook to inform action
  • are concerned that that different communities feel the effects of the climate crisis differently
  • think it is important that everyone gets a chance to create, imagine and shape our futures.
