Climate and energy
Our unjust economic system is driving climate breakdown
For millions of people around the world, climate change is a crisis which has already arrived. Many of those people have made virtually no contribution to climate change, while just 100 multinational corporations are responsible for 71% of carbon emissions.
Power to the people
To get the urgent action we need on climate change, the climate justice movement needs to build a counterweight to the huge power of corporations. A zero carbon economy will also have to be one which is more democratic and which builds solidarity with those at the forefront of climate breakdown.
COP26 comes to Glasgow
The UN climate talks (COP) are coming to Glasgow this November. After more than two decades of countries trying, and failing, to achieve their objectives we now face a climate emergency and the need for action couldn't be more urgent. Alongside the talks will be a huge civil society gathering – with people coming from all over the world - including a people’s counter-summit and mass mobilisation, as well as many fringe events.
