Great that you are interested in joining the Climate Coalition Nijmegen!
What we stand for
We seek to be as accessible as possible to organisations and individuals interested in contributing to the climate movement in Nijmegen. Our aim is to bring together different climate, environmental and social justice organisations in Nijmegen, as ‘Climate Coalition Nijmegen’ to display a united front in the name of climate justice action. Our motto is: Connect for Climate Justice!
Our climate activism is based on scientific evidence. We seek to provide an inclusive, anti-discriminatory (including queer, feminist, anti-ableist and anti-racist) environment, underlining the role of intersectionality in climate activism.
Join a circle!
The Climate Coalition uses a sociocracy system for decision-making. This means that decisions are made at the level of ‘circles’. A circle is a sub-group of the coalition that is devoted to a certain task, e.g. action planning, networking, or meeting facilitation. Circles have decision-making power over their specific topic. If you want to become active in the Climate Coalition Nijmegen, you can choose to join one or several circles.
At the moment we have the following circles:
– Networking & (Social) Media Circle
- Keeps in touch with the organizations that are part of the coalition: make sure important information is transferred both ways (e.g. newsletter)
