Digital Content Meeting - OCTOBER

There is so much that needs to be done online as the fearmongers and liars are spreading their disinformation.  

We know that we are not going to see social media giants take action against the disinformation that is spreading on their platforms so we need to ensure that we take the fight where it is being fought. Workers rights, healthcare and education are central to our beliefs and are worth fighting for.

We're gonna jump on Zoom and keep battling against the worst and most cynical groups online.

Want to take the fight to the alt-right online? RSVP below!

Climate Action for Unionists

Climate Justice RallyFor unionists, it is more urgent than ever that we campaign for climate action and hold governments to account. Workers are already on the frontlines of climate change – we protect and rebuild communities affected by natural disasters, we give care to those affected by heatwaves and bushfire smoke, and we’re working in increasingly extreme weather.

This course will teach you how unionists can climate proof workplaces, and drive climate action campaigns.

This course consists of 4 sessions run from 6.30pm-8.00pm every Tuesday of October. This course is open to union activists in Victoria.

Course Content

This course comprises four discrete modules (delivered over 4 Tuesday evenings in October) broadly covering the science behind climate change, the policy solutions, why climate change matters for workers, and how workers/unionists can become agents in climate change campaigns, including campaigns for a just energy transition.   There is a focus on developing industrial tools which, integrated with WHS legislation and organising strategies, effectively assist workers in climate-proofing their workplaces.

Key Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course participants will be able to: 

  • Explain why action on climate is urgent and why workers need to be involved in education and action around climate change.

  • Identify the impact climate change is already having on workplaces and how unions have responded to date.

  • Identify the opportunities and risks around energy transition.

  • Frame climate change as a critical issue for unionists and confidently address workers’ fears and doubts so climate messaging is consistent across the movement.

  • Integrate WHS and industrial strategies into organising and campaigning around climate change at work.

This course will run every Tuesday night of October, commencing Tuesday 5th October 2021 and run from 6.30pm - 8.00pm

Please note: this course is also being offered in November as an single, all day course on Saturday 6 November. If you would prefer this timing, please click here to RSVP.
