EPIC is partnering on a regional Climate Justice Camp on Sint Maarten, March 28-31, 2024 for young Caribbean volunteers, advocates, and community leaders who are actively involved in addressing gender, social, and/or climate issues. The Climate Justice Camp: Caribbean Edition will bring together people from the region to take part in four days of workshops and events to build knowledge, strategies, capacity, community, and networks.
The camp is a space for participants to exchange ideas, stories, and experiences to further work for climate justice in the Caribbean region and beyond. If you are a community leader, in a movement, or are advocating, working, or volunteering on climate or social justice issues affecting the Caribbean, we would love you to apply to join this camp! You can check out more details and apply here!
Applications will be open until February 9. There is no cost to apply and selected participants will have no cost (FREE) for attendance meaning all costs are covered “in-country." Travel to Sint Maarten is the applicants' responsibility, although limited financial sponsorship for travel is possible. Although youth-focused, age requirements are flexible, and all participants must be 18 by the time of travel. We're looking for applicants with strong intersectional climate justice experiences. All are welcome, and the camp is a platform to support women, indigenous, LGBTQIA+, and frontline communities that are particularly vulnerable to climate impacts. In addition, we welcome attendees who speak multiple languages including Creole, Dutch, English, French, and Spanish, however, we will not be able to offer translation services and the majority of the program will be in English.
If you have any questions about the Climate Justice Camp: Caribbean, please feel free to send us a message or email email@example.com and we'll forward you to the correct contact person.
