What does ‘Climate Justice’ mean anyway? From Ethnic Minority to Global Majority

Hosted by: Purpose Union Leading the changeRegenerative futures Audience Size: Up to 35 View map Buy Tickets View full agenda

What to expect?

“People from ethnic minority communities in Britain are, on average, more affected by the climate and nature crises than white British people due to profound societal inequity”.

In this eye-opening discussion, Kenza Essalama and Karen Larbi from social purpose strategy firm Purpose Union will shatter your perceptions about the climate movement. They will powerfully situate the climate justice movement in its historical context of environmental action in Black and brown communities in the Global North and decolonial action against environmental degradation in the Global South. They will illuminate the largely unrecognised gap between mainstream environmental institutions and grassroots climate justice movements, which threatens the collective action needed to tackle climate change. You will gain a robust understanding of the climate movement ecosystem; the life-threatening risks that environmental and human rights defenders face when protecting their ancestral lands; how climate justice impacts you and your organisation; and how you can broaden your perspective on what environmental action looks like.

Why join this session?

Are you feeling eco-anxiety? Struggling to know where to start when it comes to engaging in climate debates? Hoping to become a better advocate for marginalised climate voices? This session is for you. Join us to learn about the climate justice movement and how it impacts you.

What are the key outcomes?

By the end of the session, participants will:
