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 climate talks
The next United Nations climate talks (the Conference of Parties, or COP) will place in Glasgow 1-12 November 2021 (postponed from 2020 due to the coronavirus). As part of a broad civil society coalition, we're making plans to mobilise around the summit and to help ensure that the voices of those most affected by the climate emergency are heard.
Join our climate justice network
Our nationwide network of climate activists meets regularly to share updates on our climate campaigning and devise resources to promote climate justice. As well as helping to build the climate justice movement, our aim is to highlight the impact of the global economic system on the climate emergency, including the danger of free trade deals and how development funds are being used to finance fossil fuels.
