Dear Friends and Concerned Citizens,

I’ve stepped back to emeritus status at as I start on other projects, but I still follow my old colleagues’ work intently — and the next big thing is coming up very soon. And you can be a part of it.

The Global Just Recovery Gatheringthree days of free, online, brass tacks education — starts this Friday, and it has one focus: building energy for real action as we come out of the pandemic. Given the speed with which scientists say we must work, this may be the last high-leverage moment for huge change. We’ve seen some promising initial signs with things like the Biden plan for green infrastructure — but we need more, we need it everywhere, and we need it fast.

The movement was on the cusp when the pandemic hit — remember those truly giant student-led climate strikes in the fall of 2019? Now, we need to regain momentum.

So this Gathering is all about training everyone up. Whether you’re new to activism or a veteran of many year’s work, there will be useful sessions for you — and the special focus on the Just in Just Recovery will add to the power of this event.

Over 17,000 people from every corner of the world have signed up already — you’ll get a first-hand sense of what I mean when I say this is the largest, most diverse movement for change the world has ever seen. And you’ll come out equipped to be a better part of that movement, making change with even more power than you do now.

Can I count on seeing you at the Global Just Recovery Gathering starting this Friday, April 9? Register now to join me and thousands of climate activists from around the globe.

I’m on the “End Fossil Fuel Finance” plenary session, but mostly I’m looking forward to watching. And to seeing you there.

Let’s go onward together!
