Workshops & Trainings

350VT is happy to offer a number of different workshop and training opportunities to support our work for climate justice.

See below for our rad fall offerings!

How are Racial Justice and Climate Justice Connected?

This workshop is designed to support individuals and groups to dig into the roots of the climate crisis and explore how and why working for climate justice necessitates the dismantling of racism and white supremacy culture.  Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and consider next steps to support their own learning and concrete actions they can take within their own activism.

 

Nonviolence Study Groups

Are you interested in learning more about the ways that nonviolence is practiced as a part of movement building and transformation work? This seven-week study group will give you the opportunity to read and reflect and prepare to incorporate nonviolence into your activism. Free and open to all. Readings, discussion questions, and guidance provided.

Each workshop intends to raise critical consciousness about climate change among young Vermonters. The presentations are interactive, hands-on, and solution-oriented. We hope that these presentations will inspire students
