PANEL: A Just World
WORKSHOP: Climate Justice in Frontline Communities
People who have contributed the least to causing dangerous climate change are the ones already bearing the worst brunt of the impacts. First Nations people, disadvantaged people, women and children are one the frontline of impacts around Australia and the world. And it’s going to get worse.
Water shortages, loss of homelands, heat related deaths and forced migration – this is serious. What can we do about it? How can we be better allies to fight for Climate Justice?
In this workshop, learn more about what Climate Justice means, hear examples of how climate change impacts us differently, and start to make a plan for a fairer future.
This workshop will draw on resources generously shared by the incredible Karrina Nolan of Original Power, plus the legends at AYCC and Seed, Pacific Calling Partnership and Doctors for the Environment Australia.
I would love to share and encourage community financial support for Original Power, who are doing incredible work in the climate justice space in Australia:
