 Sustaining All Life / United to End Racism Online Events November, 2020 (here)

Sustaining All Life (SAL) and United to End Racism (UER) are participating in two key events this fall, offering our workshops, forums, and classes. Our Sustaining All Life website (in English, Spanish, and French) is the best way to introduce your friends and family to our work, and help them choose which events they would like to attend with you! 

Our first week of online events was at Climate Week New York City 2020, the week of September 21-27th, 2020.  A listing of the events we offered there is here. (In Spanish/español, in French/francais)  All were offered in multiple languages; see the listing.

In November, we will be offering workshops and a forum in coordination with Coalition COP26's Global Gathering for Climate Justice (video trailer here) and other climate justice groups in Glasgow, Scotland between November 12 and 22, 2020.  The list of SAL/UER events is here.

We are editing the Zoom videos of our Climate Week events as fast as we can and posting the videos here and on the Sustaining All Life website.  So far we have posted the videos of:

Sustaining All Life / United to End Racism Events Online at Coalition COP26 in Glasgow, November 1 - 12, 2021

SAL/UER will also participate in Coalition COP26--the digital event is scheduled to take place the week that the original COP26 was to be held.  More soon.  

COP26 in Glasgow, November 1 - 12, 2021

COP26 has officially been rescheduled.  Sustaining All Life/United to End Racism will attend COP26 Glasgow 2021 (United Nations Climate Conference) in November 2021. The planned meeting for November 2020 in Glasgow, Scotland was postponed due to COVID-19. The new dates are November 1-12th, 2021.

SAL/UER at the COPs and climate action summits presents a series of daily workshops, forums, support groups, listening projects, introductory classes, caucuses, and more.

SAL workshop presenters share their perspective on key topics related to the climate emergency and how we have used the tools of Re-evaluation Counseling to free ourselves and others from emotional hurts that have interfered with our functioning. The workshops are interactive, giving participants the chance to share their experiences and be listened to awarely. 

SAL forums provide opportunities for people impacted by climate change, activists, indigenous people, and others to speak to an assembled group with their story.  Periodically the flow of speakers is paused to give the audience the opportunity to exchange listening with one another in pairs. Everyone appreciates the chance to tell their stories to an interested audience, as well as the chance to hear others' stories.

SAL Formats

At our workshops the presenters share their perspective on current environmental issues and how we have used the tools of Re-evaluation Counseling to free ourselves and others from emotional hurts that have interfered with our functioning. Our workshops are interactive, giving participants the chance to share their experiences and be listened to. 

At the forums, activists sign up for a 3-5 minute turn to speak about the impact of climate change on their people, stories of hope and courage in activism, young activism, and more.  Periodically the flow of speakers is paused for the opportunity for the audience to exchange listening with one another in pairs. 

We hold many listening projects at the COPs, encouraging passers-by to share their thinking on key climate change issues, using questions such as:

  • What do you think about climate change?  What should be done?
  • How do you feel about fossil fuels? Should we "leave them in the ground"? 
  • Do you think wealthy nations should help less developed nations pay for environmental damage caused by climate change? 
  • What gives you hope as a climate activist?  What's hard for you about it?
  • What are you worried or scared about losing to climate change?
  • How can we build the movement we need to change everything?

Support groups are offered daily, offering people a chance to be listened to about their feelings connected to climate change.  Having the chance to share their anger, their discouragement, their hope in a mutually supportive group refreshes people and gives them fresh ideas for action.  Group leaders also helped people think about how to set up support groups in their home communities.

An Introductory class in Re-evaluation Counseling is also held daily.
