The LCN Europe team had an amazing time at the Citizens Participatory University (CPU) organized by ECON in Kunbábony, Hungary. In its 13th year, the 2022 edition of CPU brought together participants from 13 countries across Europe and focused on three learning tracks: 1) Organizing for Climate Justice, 2) Organizing in Times of Crisis, and 3) Public Narratives on Climate.
LCN Europe was represented by Masha Burina and Jens Kristian Vittrup Rasmussen, who hosted a Public Narrative workshop for the CPU participants. Leaders told stories of reconnecting to ourselves through nature, the importance of sharing our ups-and-downs to break through isolation, and finding hope in our communities.
The energy and momentum that the team experienced coming out of CPU this year is a testament to the commitment of the organizers towards the movement for climate justice, its urgency, and the desire for collective action. We are excited to continue building together with ECON in the coming months and years.
