Youth Climate Justice Activism: Changing the Agenda
Youth climate justice activists – from the streets to the courts – have been changing the conversation about climate change at the local, national and global levels. Hear from youth activists and allies from movements in the UK and Turtle Island as they share their experiences with one another and discuss the ways forward, including potential legal actions at the national levels, drawing on the experience of 21 youth suing the US government for climate change (Juliana vs. US). Individuals from around the world are invited to participate in the online webinar in real time, and contribute their thoughts, experiences and questions.
Key questions of this webinar include:
- How are movements currently coordinating or collaborating across movements, cities, countries and continents? What are the opportunities and challenges for future collaboration?
- What are opportunities for leveraging inter-generational support?
- How might movements draw on the wisdoms of Indigenous nations, communities and organizations with respect to living in reciprocal relationship with the earth?
