Climate Justice

Frontline communities historically and presently bear the brunt of health, economic and ecological impacts that are the consequences of climate change.

What we are doing

URGENT NEWS: The IPCC releases a NEW report: "Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability" (PDF)

The new report from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says that if we do not act ASAP, the adverse effects of climate change will happen faster than we or other species can adapt and states that nations are not doing enough to stem pollution let alone to adapt to what science shows is coming.

-----------------------------------------------

We are engaging with allies and communities most impacted by the hardships of a changing climate. Together we strive to ensure a regenerative economy with full access to renewable energy, clean air and water, valued jobs and healthy living environments.
