GGJ-IEN-MG CLIMATE JUSTICE TOOLKIT

Within GGJ we've made the commitment to increase our own education on the politics of climate change disruption and the need for climate justice.  At our February membership assembly and again at our September coordinating committee, GGJ members and leaders decided to make climate justice work a priority for our alliance, and to engage in both education and collective action toward this goal.

To help make this happen, Global Well-Being Committee members Jihan Gearon of IEN, Sara Mersha of DARE and Rose Brewer of Afro-Eco have compiled a popular education-action toolkit that you can use to organize educational workshops, forums, media events and actions in your areas. 

This toolkit has been augmented by resources created through the Cancun COP16 process.

  • Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) Climate Glossary (download below)
  • IEN Fact Sheets (below)
  • IEN Climate Science and Justice Workshops (below)
  • Discussion questions on connection between climate justice and local work (below)
  • Discussion Questions for Evo Morales' Statement on REDDs (below)
  • Report from Cochabamba World People's Conference (below)

Prepared by Sara Mersha of DARE, this is a tool that breaks down the different concepts of the Cochabamba People's Agreement, an agreement written through a democratic process involving the 30,000 people who attended the People's World Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth Rights.  It's a people's alternative to the failures of climate negotiations to this point, and it is the basis for a lot of the demands of international social movements for climate justice.
