Get prepared for the Climate Strikes
Welcome to the Climate Strike Group Safety Hub.
Organising a Climate Strike demanding urgent action on the climate crisis can carry risks. Whatever political context you organise in, it’s important that your group prepares for risks, and has the capacity and connections to keep each other, and your Climate Strike participants safe.
This hub provides an overview of tools and support mechanisms that 350.org provides for local climate action groups.
#1: Get prepared
Check out the Climate Strikes Risk & Safety Toolkit as a starting point for your group. It covers topics including: Personal Security, Group Security and Risk Planning, Crisis Response, Participant wellbeing at events, your duty of care and guidelines for under-18’s, and an Identifying Risks worksheet
#2: In-depth training and preparation
If your group is campaigning in a medium-high risk environment, 350.org provide a limited number of small grants to enable climate change campaigning groups to do security and/or resilience training. The training might focus on physical or digital security for your team, or making plans to build your resilience as a team to threats, or of course a combination of different aspects.
→ We have a short application form that you need to fill out to request support for a training.
#3: In a crisis – what can 350.org help with?
If your group finds itself in a crisis beyond your means to deal with, or need solidarity support, 350.org may be able to provide some crisis support, or connect you with others who can.
