2nd National Gathering on Climate Justice – Lisbon

encontro
At a time when the Portuguese coast is threatened by oil and gas extraction projects, when Trump tries to erase climate change from international agenda in order to re-boost the fossil fuel industry with Putin, we gather to discuss and prepare the fight against climate change and for social justice.

Note: Most of the sessions will be held in Portuguese, all we can promise is that we would improvise translation to English when needed.
