Sustaining All Life at COP25 in Santiago, Chile

December 2 - December 8, 2019 (español)

Sustaining All Life (SAL) will be attending COP25 in Santiago, Chile (now Madrid, Spain) with a 32 person delegation. Our goal is to bring our tools of listening and emotional healing to the COP and to make clear the connection between climate change and capitalism, racism, sexism, classism and oppression of indigenous peoples and young people.

With the move of COP25 to Madrid, we will also be holding daily forums highlighting the voices of Latin Americans on issues of climate change and the intersection with social justice.

At COP25 SAL will offer a series of events where we share our understandings, and our tools of listening and healing. We hope to have our own exhibit booth.  We will offer workshops on the following themes: Eliminating the Effects of Racism in Our Work, Young People at the Forefront of the Climate Movement, Indigenous People and the Fight for the Environment, Climate Change and Institutional Violence, Women and Climate Justice, Sustaining Ourselves as Activists and Organizers, Parents Take Action for Climate Justice, Expressing Climate Grief, and The Environment and Health.

We will also do forums (inviting people to come speak from their own experiences) for young people, Indigenous people, Latin Americans, and addressing the impact of climate change in Latin America.

Daily we will hold an Introductory Class on the Tools of Sustaining All Live and a support group for young people and well as meetings for different constituencies.
