About this Event
‘Climate justice’ has become a buzzword in the climate movement. But what does it really mean?
In this workshop we will be exploring this question while looking at why the climate movement must take into account how our economic system created and perpetuates climate change. We will understand why those who are least responsible for climate change are suffering the gravest consequences.
But we will also look at how people are fighting back by demanding social and economic justice and how we can all stand together to fight for climate justice for everyone.
The coronavirus has put a strain on healthcare and food systems. The pandemic has shown us that in moments of real crisis, we can marshal extraordinary resources to solve problems facing society. It has also shown that if we aren’t careful, the costs of fighting a crisis may fall on the least prepared or responsible, whilst the wealthy get bailouts. When this crisis subsides, we will still have another to deal with – the climate crisis. We need climate justice now more than ever.
