Equity and Justice-Centered Action for Climate Empowerment
How can we accelerate equitable and just climate action? In this talk we explore this question, considering what kind of system changes are needed to ensure that everyone knows how to rapidly contribute from their sphere of influence to improve our shared future with respect to climate change and intersections issues. We will share about the nature of climate science as a field, the ways in which learning can be organized, and new transformative opportunities in practice that are emerging in the field of climate justice.
