#WarmUP 1.0 : Climate Workshop
Updated: Sep 1
Date : 14/9/19 to 15/9/19
Venue : Secret Lair, Petaling Jaya
KAMY collaborated with Greenpeace Malaysia in designing modules for the first ever Climate Workshop in Malaysia, focused on grassroots campaigning.
There is an increased interest from the public over climate issues in Malaysia. However,
climate literacy is still very low especially in materials covered in Bahasa Melayu. To add to the lack of know-how, most young activists also suffer from directive loss and, lack of
experience and confidence when dealing with other stakeholders; eg frontline community, local groups, and the media/press. WarmUp functions as a know-how conduit among grassroots organizations to effectively campaign for serious and meaningful climate action in Malaysia. In this first WarmUp, we will explore the basics of grassroots climate campaigning. The objectives are as follows:
● Increased technical confidence in climate data
● Identifying local issues and creative brainstorming narratives
● Engaging your target audience with a directed climate campaign
● Support and networking for #OPSDaruratIklim
● Mass training - act on behalf of the movement with both autonomy and unity.
The workshops was facilitated by:
Reuben Andrew Muni - Program Manager, Greenpeace Malaysia.
Heng - Malaysian Campaigner Officer, Greenpeace Malaysia.
Sakeenah - Public Engagement Campaigner, Greenpeace Malaysia.
Yvonne - Digital & Media Campaigner, Greenpeace Malaysia.
Nadiah - Coordinator and strategist, Klima Action Malaysia
