Title: Teach in for Climate Justice


1
Teach in for Climate Justice
March 1 12, 2010
  • An opportunity to focus discussion on creating a
    clean, just and sustainable energy future

2
Role of College and University Campuses
  • As historic drivers of innovation and forward
    thinking, postsecondary institutions and the
    communities within have a responsability to
    educate and build solutions around the issues
    facing our world today

3
Climate Change
The issue of climate change is one that we
ignore at our own perilAnd unless we free
ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels
and chart a new course on energy in this country,
we are condemning future generations to global
catastrophe.- Barack Obama
Climate change is a problem that crosses all
boundaries gender, race, culture and
socio-economic status
4
Climate Justice
  • is the way we speak about the impacts of climate
    change by recognizing the social inequities that
    define it

dWhy do we need Climate Justice?...
5
Because
  • Those who contribute the least emissions per
    capita suffer most of the impacts of climate
    change (International Development Studies)
  • The impacts of climate change are
    disproportionately felt by small island states,
    women, youth, coastal peoples, local communities,
    indigenous peoples, fisherfolk, poor people and
    the elderly. (Human Geography)

6
Because
  • Loss of biodiversity unjustly effects those who
    live closest to the land AND the creatures
    becoming extinct (Ecosystem Management
    Technicians)
  • There has been failure to recognize key
    principles of climate change negotiation
    frameworks making the outcome of international
    summits unjust. (Political Science)
  • Market-based mechanisms currently being
    promoted by transnational corporations are false
    solutions and are exacerbating the problem
    (Economics)

7
Because
  • The movement towards a clean, equitable
  • future should include ALL people and
  • backgrounds in the decision making process.
    (Everyone)
