Resource meeting, Prague

posted 12 Oct 2011, 00:42 by Christine Sudbrock

Dear ATACC group,

our meeting in Prague is coming closer and several of you have asked already about buying tickets. Finally I send you some more details about that.

Please aim to arrive at Thursday 3rd November before dinner, so we can start with the programme in the evening. Departure day is Sunday 6th November. Please try to find a train or flight in the afternoon, so that we can have a last session on Sunday morning.
We will stay in the hotel Prokopka (http://www.prokopka.cz/welcome.html). Our seminar room is a 10 minutes walk from there.
The main aim of this meeting is to work on the handbook that will help other youth leaders to run climate change campaigns with their groups. We will try out educational methods you have used in your campaigns and discuss which ones to include in the handbook, we will collect 'do's and don'ts' of media campaigns, tell our campaign stories etc. The meeting will also serve to evaluate the ATACC project so far, because it will be the last meeting of the whole ATACC group.
We will send a draft programme and details on how to reach the hotel in a few weeks.

 Reference prices:
The maximum prices are:
- from Catalonia: 300 Euro per person
- from Germany: 150 Euro per person
- from Austria: 100 Euro per person
- from UK: 200 Euro per person
- from Finland: 300 Euro per person
- from Norway: 250 Euro per person
- from Latvia: 300 Euro per person
- from Slovakia: 75 Euro per person.

If you don't find anything in this price range, please contact me. We advise you to take a train or bus to come to Prague (remember the bet we made at Co-camp...).
Please bring materials that you have made for your campaigns (videos, educational materials, leaflets....) and photos, articles etc. about your campaigns, so that we can share what we have done so far.

Please send me your e-tickets/ booking confirmations (indicating price and arrival/departure time) as soon as you have them and tell me if you want to be reimbursed by cash or bank transfer.

Don’t forget to bring original tickets or e-tickets AND boarding passes to the seminar. We can only reimburse you if we have tickets and boarding passes!

The participation fee is again 50 Euros.

We also strongly recommend that you buy travel insurance – we cannot cover any missed flights or if you become ill and it will save you money in case of an accident. We cannot reimburse travel insurance, but please bring receipts of payment (our grant givers need to see them).

 In friendship,

 Christine

Start of local ATCC campaigns

Dear all,
thanks for a great training course in the Salvador-Allende Haus! In the next days we will upload lots of educational materials that will be useful for starting off your campaigns. We will give you the materials that we have used throughout the training, and some other resources that might be helpful for you. Especially the groups who focus on educational work should definitely look through them. We will also give you access to some easy-to-understand resources on climate change, but these might come a bit later.

Here's a link to the vimeo channel of our friends from Push Europe, with some cool videos of you and about you!

Training Course

Training Course 13-22 May 2011

Dear participants,

An exciting project is lying ahead of us!  It includes face-to-face meetings in an international group, virtual interaction and local activities, all around climate change and the media.

In the second document attached to this e-mail you find information on the e-learning space. With this letter we invite you to the first face-to-face meeting: the Training Course taking place in Germany.

Please book your travel as soon as possible. More information about the programme and what to bring will follow later.

Arrival: Friday May 13th 2010, preferably before 19:00

Departure: Sunday May 22nd, anytime

Venue: Salvador-Allende Haus, Oer-Erkenschwick (www.allende-haus.de)

How to get there?

To reach the Allende-Haus, you need to take a bus from the train station in Recklinghausen.

How to go to Recklinghausen: You can search for trains at: http://www.bahn.de

Either your hometown (as this site covers all trains in Europe) or Duesseldorf Flughafen, the nearest airport.

Below you type in: Recklinghausen Hbf.

Also type in the right date and time and go to search.  You will then see different travel options.

If you come from Düsseldorf airport:

Take the ‘RE’ trains going directly to Recklinghausen. They are the cheapest and fastest ones. They leave every hour at 14 minutes past.  The last RE train leaves at 22:14. Your plane should arrive at least an hour earlier than that.

One ticket from Duesseldorf to Oer-Erkenschwick (via Recklinghausen) costs 11,40 Euro. You can buy the tickets at the counter or at a ticket machine. You need a ticket in ‘Preisstufe D’. (Price segment D).

You need to stamp/ validate the ticket on the platform or in the train.

When you arrive in Recklinghausen, leave the train station and look for bus no 231 direction Waltrop am Moselbach.

The bus leaves every 30 minutes. You have to get off at the stop ‘Maritimo’ in Oer-Erkenschwick. From there you follow the orange line on the map to the Allende Haus.

We strongly encourage you to take the train (or a coach) instead of a plane because of the very high amount of CO2 emissions caused by plane travel.

You (or your organisation) need to cover 30% of any plane tickets. If you travel by train/coach you will have to pay 30% but never more than the amount on the reference price below.

If you take the train or coach, it is okay if your ticket is more expensive than indicated below, but in that case please contact us before booking.

Rynair flights go to an airport called "Duesseldorf (Weeze)". This airport is not in Duesseldorf, but around one hour away from the city...

Please send me your e-tickets/ booking confirmations (indicating price and arrival/departure time) as soon as you have them and tell me if you want to be reimbursed by cash or bank transfer.

Welcome to the participants

Dear all,

A very warm welcome to all of you! You are a group of 25 people from 9 European countries who joined an exciting and intensive project.

‘All together against climate change’ is – of course – about climate change, but also about the power of media, about informing people, about convincing people, about group work and education.

  • You will learn more than just half-truths and myths about climate change and discover how young people can use different forms of media to campaign for the fight against climate change.
  • You will run these campaigns in your cities – not alone, but with other young people from your organisations.
  • With all your new competencies and experience, you will join Co-camp, the international camp of co-operation in England, to run workshops for people from all over the world.
  • And finally we will publish a handbook together, about your campaigns and how you have developed them, so that other groups can do the same and join the fight against climate change.

That is a lot, but it is also very exciting! Don’t worry, we will take you step by step through the project and are there for you whenever you need our support.

The first steps we are going to take together will take place here, on this online platform.

There will be four modules before the training course:

-       A short ‘pre module’, online now: Get to know each other and this site

-       Module 1, launch February 28th: How do we use media and how do media influence us?

-       Module 2, launch March 15th: Basic introduction to the science of climate change

-       Module 3, launch April 15th: The politics of climate change

2 modules to update each other about the work in your groups will take place after the training course.

We will use a variety of methods: You will watch youtube clips, upload photos and screenshots, read texts (whenever possible in your own language) and sometimes write short texts or comments. You will do some things alone, other together in the team from your organisation.

We expect that you will spend around 3 hours per module – not at once, but coming back from time to time to see new things, comment on posts of others and receive new questions. Some of you will spend less time, others will get fascinated by the topics and spend more time exploring.

Whether you are a fan of online stuff or the things we offer you here or not: Please come back regularly and take part in all modules. That means when we come together in Germany, we all know what is going on and are ‘in the project’ already. We are very much looking forward to this and we hope you are, too!

Enjoy and start exploring.

In Friendship,

Your team; Kit, Kat, Lloyd, Nina, Jiri and Christine

Welcome to All Together Against Climate Change

posted 26 Jan 2011, 04:30 by Unknown user

We aim to create a European network of peer educators who will receive professional training on media and communication (understanding the impact of media as well as practical tools to develop quality media products) and climate change to transmit to their local youth groups and wider communities.

They will work with their peers to develop media campaigns on the fight against climate change which address young people in their environment and in the form and language best suited to them.

This is the website for the e-learning for the participants of the project. We aim to explore the media and climate change and use this as a collaborative forum for everyone.
