2 days before the first lock-down back in March we learned that the meeting and panel discussion with Climate and Energy Attorney Nicholas Caleb who came to us from Portland, OR had to be canceled. Time flies, and since then Nicholas became the co-founder of a Portland-based NGO Breach Collective, and came back to us with an opportunity to continue the conversation.

Together with Nicholas as a follow up to the initial event we would like to invite all of you interested in environmental action to a free online course – “Manifesting the Green New Deal: a professional education course for activists, organizers, and attorneys” that Nicholas and Breach Collective is hosting. There is already over 500 participants registered and the number is growing every day, including students and professors from the best American Universities like Yale and Georgetown.

The Schedule of the course is as follows:

  • Feb. 10 – Racial Justice in the Just Transition – Olufemi Taiwo (Professor of Philosophy at Georgetown University)
  • Feb. 17 – Pressing Issues of Environmental and Climate Justice in International Governance – Jay Monteverde, Danny Noonan, and Nick Caleb (Breach Collective)

This course is a great opportunity to learn from the best in the field and network with great individuals. As the course starts on the 10th of February we encourage you to act fast.

We hope you enjoy it and if you do we might bring Nick and Breach Collective back to Prague one day to have some face to face experience!
