The Extreme Energy Extraction (EEE) Collaborative grew out of its first
Movement Summit held in February 2013 that brought together a diverse
group of 70 activists fighting against energy extraction from every
corner of the country, industry and type of organization. The
Collaborative aims to create a more unified movement against energy
extraction through creating shared languages, fostering relationships
across the diverse spectrum of groups working on the issues, and
providing space for dialogue that allows innovative collaborations to
form. We envision a united movement led by front line communities and
grassroots organizations for a just energy system, where no community is
sacrificed for another.
For our 2nd Summit, we are inviting 100 people ranging from grassroots
leaders to national environmental organizations, and activist funders to
organizers, for an extended weekend of conversation to share knowledge
and develop concrete collaborative projects that strengthen our
movement. There is still space for about 30 more awesome folks (yes,
YOU) to join us, so please come!
The Collaborative is not convened by a single organization, funder, or
coalition, but instead grew out of grassroots organizers recognizing the
need to work together across boundaries. The Summit will be facilitated
by the Highlander Center for Research and Education.
