GJN: Introduction To Climate Justice


No upcoming dates - see all dates

Event organised by Brighton Global Justice youth activists and aimed at those under 30 in the Brighton area.
Join activists from Global Justice Now's Youth Network and University of Sussex Student's Union for this Zoom call where we learn about climate justice in an interactive workshop. With a section exploring the plight of climate and environmental defenders who have been killed in the struggle to protect land and people.
‘Climate justice’ has become a buzzword in the climate movement. But what does it really mean?
This workshop looks at why the climate movement must take into account our economic system and how it created and perpetuates climate change. We’ll 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. With a dedicated section exploring the plight of climate and environmental defender Berta Caceres who was shot and killed for her work defending the Río Gualcarque and the Lenca people’s land and rights, for which she won the Goldman Prize.
With:
Roseanne Steffen (Global Justice activist and Sussex SU Sustainability Officer) Cameron Joshi (Global Justice Now youth campaigner)
