For those who attended the recent WESSA Durban Branch/350 Climate Change workshop, this is a continuation workshop.  

 

About the Million Person Project: This is an international project about love, globalizing relationships and supporting change makers in the environmental field. Having just finished a month trip in Vietnam where nine Story Telling for Change public narrative workshops were held across the country, they are now in South Africa to participate in the United Nations climate negotiations and lead workshops with young leaders from around the globe. Early next year they will head to Uganda to work with local change makers to support their initiatives and lead the story telling workshops in Kampala and Mbale.

 

The Million Person Project is a new initiative founded by Heather Box and Julian Mocine-McQueen, who together have more than 15 years of experience in activism, youth leadership, and environmental education. Heather previously worked at 350.org as the East Asian Field Director, was the Deputy Director of the League of Young Voters, and has been an active leader in youth empowerment efforts for years. Julian is currently the Campaign and Partnerships Manager and a lead trainer at Green For All, the ground-breaking environmental justice organization founded by green jobs visionary Van Jones.
