An opportunity to focus discussion on creating a clean, just and sustainable energy future
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
“The issue of climate change is one that we ignore at our own peril…And 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
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?...
The movement towards a clean, equitable
future should include ALL people and
backgrounds in the decision making process. (Everyone)
