BIPoC Climate Conference in Leipzig

We’d like to share this invitation for the upcoming BIPoC+ Climate Conference in November in Leipzig.

Dear friends and fellow-fighters,

We, who identify ourselves as Black, Indigenous and People of Color
climate activists in a white dominated space, have come to the
conclusion that it is necessary to organize a conference for BIPoC+
people who are interested in climate questions and climate justice.

Just as no one can save the world alone, no one can take care of
themselves alone. We think it is necessary to build a wider network and
create a space to share experiences with which we are confronted at the
intersection of climate justice movement and racism. We want to organize
a conference for the BIPoC climate activists, where we create a space
for an exchange of such discussions. Storytelling, different
perspectives, developing strategies and education on new topics are
among our goals. The program is not yet settled, so we are open for
input and suggestions.

When: November 14-15, 2020
Where: Leipzig, place to be announced.
Duration: 2 days

Despite Corona we still want to try to get this event going. For this
purpose a team has been meeting for some weeks now and has already
planned a lot of things, but we are happy about new people.On Saturday
