The Get-together for environmental activism
12-14 July, Hartington, Derbyshire
This won't be a top-down 'Conference'. BASECAMP is being developed and run as collaboratively as possible with an activist working group, local groups and the network more widely.
This is an event primarily for the Friends of the Earth network of local groups. We also very much welcome people who aren't Friends of the Earth members but are active on environmental issues.
Join us at Basecamp to
• Skill up - share expertise, build and learn skills.
• Meet up - with a broad spectrum of people with a common goal.
• Have your say - in how we can campaign together to achieve our ambitions.
• Rejuvenate - in the midst of some of the most beautiful scenery in Britain.
There'll be a range of creative, festival-inspired and thought-provoking activities throughout the weekend (suggestions and offers very welcome). And you can't fail to be inspired by our prize ceremony for local campaigning - the Earthmovers Awards.
Guest speakers confirmed so far include George Monbiot (Columnist and author) and Elías Díaz Peña (Friends of the Earth Paraguay) with more on the way.
