This workshop is part of the SELFCity project, which is focusing on grassroots responses to climate change. In response to WinACC activists deliberations at events earlier in the year two capacity building workshops are being held this autumn. This is the first and will focus on developing networks, in particular how we can engage more effectively with young people and with the business community.
