Who has worked with us
With Future Matters’ help, we got ready much more quickly to speak to politicians and the media about an effective but complex climate policy. Future Matters gave us a space for strategic brainstorming and sought direct access to potential allies. That was very helpful for us.

Through the Future Matters trainings, hundreds of activists have been able to better build local groups, win over outsiders and run strategic campaigns. Future Matters helped develop well thought-out strategies for some of our most important projects and answered important directional questions.
