Workshop: Climate Justice is Social Justice
October 4, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT
The Transition movement should be all about both climate and social justice – but is it? Could we do much better? If so, how? This workshop will feature a blend of participant interaction and brief remarks by special guests drawn from across the climate and social justice worlds. The goal is to clarify and deepen our thinking and actions for confronting the climate crisis with social justice. Participants will be introduced to the global climate justice network and some of the beautiful systemic alternatives that are happening right now.
This plenary is being offered as part of the 2021 Regenerative Communities Summit. Please click here to learn more and register using our pay-what-you-can donation-based system to participate.
