Yes Lab Workshop: Creative Direct Action for Climate Justice
Saturday, September 20th
NYC Climate Convergence
16 Beaver, 4th Floor
FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
In the lead up to #PeoplesClimate March on 9/21, we‘re particpating in a day of teach-ins and workshops. JOIN US!
Formed by The Yes Men, the Yes Lab helps activists and organizations carry out media-getting direct actions. In this workshop, we will share some juicy nuggets of how we develop effective, fun and meaningful actions that you can use for raising climate awareness.
We’ll also preview our brand new tool, the Action Switchboard, which is a human moderated online platform that will be released next month. It will allow you to initiate and join direct political actions, connect with supportive NGOs, receive training and resources to help put important issues into the spotlight, and share stories of your actions. Join Andy and the Yes Lab team to be among the first to get a peek!
