2015 is on track to be the hottest year in recorded history. Yet momentum is growing to stop this climate change crisis. Some political and religious leaders are beginning to get the message - that people like you have been voicing for years. However, the upcoming conference on climate change in Paris (COP21) is expected to become just as big a failure as all its predecessors. Since the organization of the first COP21 in 1994 only false solutions have come out of it, CO2 emissions kept rising and the climate change crisis is still increasing.

As always when talking about climate change, politicians remain to use their populisitc talks that sound appealing and common sense. That´s how they manage to ´sell´ us their (false) solutions after every UN climate conference. The truth about the climate change crisis is, however, often difficult to understand and takes more time to explain. Therefore we need to expand our story-telling skills. Cause if we cannot explain this story well enough, unconscious people will remain uninterested and keep following the populistic talks.

That's why we want to use the 'True Cost of Coal' graphic of the Beehive Collective. This graphic of 6x3 meters is so extremely detailed that one can stare at it for hours, meanwhile listening to a speaker telling the true story of the climate crisis as depicted on the graphic. This is story-telling to keep people interested and to make them clear how we got into this crisis and how we can (still) solve it. One of the obvious solutions should be: leave coal in the ground!

So here's the plan:

Friday evening:
- Power Through Paris workshop (more info: http://350.org/power-through-paris/)
- Presentation of the Beehive Poster.
This evening is open for everyone @ Grote Broek. If you want to master the story about the climate change crisis, the Beehive poster and improve your story-telling skills, than sign-up for the weekend-long workshop on...

...Saturday and Sunday:
- Story telling course
- 'Translating' the story of the Beehive poster to the European situation
- Practice and work out our plans.
- Start a collective in the Netherlands and neighbouring countries, to spread the word and the poster.
Sign up by sending an email to: cre-act(at)riseup.net
or: http://act.350.org/event/power-through-paris-workshops_attend/11180

The workshops will (mainly) be in English and are especially interesting for campaign coordinators, writers, bloggers, researchers, artists and teachers. Nevertheless, they´re open for everyone!
