LONDON  28 JAN (1500 x 800 px) (Facebook Cover).png

The climate crisis will define politics and economics throughout this century, impacting working people in every way.

From fast rising prices to food shortages, industrial change to floods and fires. The transition is underway but led by corporate interests at the expense of workers. Now more than ever we need to build workers’ power, to both halt industrial pollution and win a transition that is worker-led and fair.

We Make Tomorrow is a one day conference for building workers power on climate and crisis.


Organised by the Trade Union Caucus of the Climate Justice Coalition, We Make Tomorrow will bring together workers in key sectors with trade union officials, climate justice activists and scientists to explore what climate change means for us and what we should do about it.

Trade Union Breakouts 

Connect with others in your trade union. Together, explore the issues from problems to solutions. And then make plans to organise to win climate justice for all! 


Planes, Trains & Automobiles - Transport for People & Planet

Transport is the fastest growing source of UK carbon emissions and studies are predicting tens of thousands of job losses in automotive and aviation industries. At the same time public rail and bus travel is privatised and squeezed. Discuss the solutions for a just transition with rail, automotive and other transport workers. 


From Farm to Plate: Growing a Fair Food System

What can be more vital or fundamental than feeding our society? And yet, from farm work to hospitality and retail via distribution, low pay, dangerous work and minimal job security is the common experience for workers in our corporate food system. Meanwhile, carbon emissions from agriculture and transport are major contributors to climate change. How do we grow good green food?

Health, Care & Public Services: Good Green Jobs? 

Society urgently needs an expansion of low-carbon health, care, education and public/emergency services work. But much of it is low or unpaid, undervalued and under threat. How can we organise to take control of the public sector, recognise the most vital work and build the caring economy we need?

Powering the Future: Energy, Buildings & Industry

Who can be in any doubt the energy system is broken? Consumers are ripped off and living in fuel poverty while leaky homes are the biggest source of UK carbon emissions and fossil fuel energy companies profit. Meanwhile workers in foundational industries like steel are also facing major attacks. How do we take control of how we make, move and power things?

Our team is a great place to meet likeminded trade unionists and climate justice activists. Our organising team is working on promotion, developing the program, raising funds and handling the logistics of the event. We will also need a team of volunteers to help run the conference on the day, and we might look to create some street outreach teams for leafleting/postering etc. Want to be involved? Just sign up below and we will be in touch!
