Challenging the military carbon bootprint (COP26)

The world's militaries are major carbon emitters yet are not even required to report their emissions, let alone reduce them. This workshop will discuss the size of military carbon emissions, the role of the military sector in protecting the extraction economy, how they seek to capitalise on the climate crisis by offering armed 'solutions', and how we might confront military power and forge lasting just alternatives to war.

Monday 8 November; 16.15-17.45 (UK time)

Venue: Renfield Centre Church Hall, 260 Bath St, Glasgow G2 4JP, UK

An in-person workshop at the People's Summit for Climate Justice - please register for this event in advance.
