skilling up to effect radical change
We know that in order to effect radical change, we need to understand the world around us, how we got here and what the alternative looks like. To win that alternative though, we need to build an effective movement, that is skilled, informed and empowered to force change.

Campaign Organiser Training with Tyrone Scott
Tyrone joined the Green Party 7 years ago and has been a campaigner for climate justice ever since. He recently stood as a candidate in the 2019 General Election in Hackney South and Shoreditch and saw the Green Party vote share double. He has contributed to articles about the climate crisis and spent many days and nights demonstrating on the streets. Born in Germany, to a German mother and British-Jamaican father, Tyrone feels these multicultural roots have contributed to his concern for a crisis which is global and affects us all.
