Lancaster Jobs for Climate Change Week


The Dukes will be showing the film One Million Climate Jobs Now! (plus shorts) at 7:30pm on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd May in the Gallery. On the Wednesday Shaun Dey, the filmmaker will be in attendance.


The films each night are:
 One Million Climate Jobs Now! – a film made to start the major campaign of the same name of which the Climate Jobs Caravan is a part.

 BULGARIA Fracking Victory! – huge demos in Bulgaria force the government to ban the dangerous process of fracking.

100,000 March in Copenhagen - (from 2010) the biggest march for climate justice ever, plus an introduction to the mass movements of the Global South.

The One Million Climate Change Jobs Caravan (see http://www.climate-change-jobs.org) is coming to Lancaster's Market Square on Thursday 24 May as part of its tour of the North. It has inspired a local festival of events to explain its plan to persuade the government to invest £18 billion a year in sustainable electricity, transport and heating jobs


In the evening of the 24th at 7:30pm there will be a public forum on the One Million Climate Jobs campaign with a national speaker, Martin Empson, introducing. This will be held in the Music Room at the Storey.

During the day there will also be a Green Jobs Fair at Lancaster and Morecambe College (12pm - 4pm).

You can see more about the week's events on facebook at Climate Change Caravan, Lancaster or read more about the national campaign at http://www.climate-change-jobs.org/
