Climate Justice

What is Climate Justice?

Climate justice is a movement that approaches climate change as a sociopolitical issue rather than solely a scientific phenomenon. It focuses on the idea that the impacts of climate change are disproportionately felt by some communities – those that already face the most disadvantages.

Taking Action on Climate Justice

We can’t stop climate change entirely, but with global, collective action, we can reduce the extent of warming and we can be prepared for what is to come. The longer that meaningful climate action is delayed, the more difficult it will be to address it, and the more harm it will do.
