Labor Leading on Climate: A Training Curriculum for Leaders and Members of Unions and Workers’ Organizations. The Worker Institute at Cornell, in collaboration with a number of New York based unions and workers’ organizations, is developing a comprehensive, training curriculum on “Why the Climate Crisis is a Union and Worker Fight.” This is a 90 minute, highly-interactive training curriculum that is designed to:
§ Explain the scale and urgency of the climate crisis, including who and what is causing it;
§ Outline the impact of the climate crisis on unions and working people
§ Activate workers and union members to develop and advance a pro-worker/pro-labor response to the climate crisis; and
§ Get workers and union members engaged in actions to build a broader, more powerful movement for climate and economic justice, including climate jobs campaigns.
To learn more about this training curriculum, which includes a “train-the-trainer” manual, a pre-training quiz, two lived experience exercises, and powerpoint slides, please contact Lara Skinner at Lrs959[at]cornell.edu
