Event: Positive Tipping Points in Practice: Climate Justice

18 October 2022 | 18.30-20.30


Published September 9, 2022

“Climate change takes any problem you already had, any threat you were already under, and multiplies it. Climate change is not the great equaliser, it is the great multiplier.” Mary Annaise Heglar

We are already seeing disproportionate impacts of the climate crisis across the world, and without a just and fair response this inequity will dramatically increase.

But how can climate justice be embedded within the way we work and live? What is being done already in existing systems? How can we better understand the potential for climate justice to tip us into new systems?

Join this free workshop to find out, and hear the latest research into Positive Tipping Points, from world-leading experts. We will collectively practice using the Positive Tipping Points framework – creating the right conditions for change, finding reinforcing feedback loops, and triggering a shift into a new system – before identifying key next steps for anyone involved in social movements.

The Positive Tipping Points framework is a way to re-think our understanding of how change happens. We’re familiar with negative tipping points that can accelerate the crisis, such as glacier melt or biodiversity loss, but we are also able to predict and encourage positive shifts which will help us avoid the worst impacts.

This event is part of a series of free Green Futures Network workshops following the Global Tipping Points Conference in Exeter in September. The final event will be an open space session to further explore key ideas that have emerged throughout the series. To sign up to the other events in the series, use the following links:
