Climate Justice Education

Climate Justice Education also focuses on how climate impacts differently on communities according to their socio-economic positions. For example, the poorest communities are more likely to be affected by drought, floods, and other extreme weather events caused by climate change.
A climate justice framework also translates to climate action. Often, solutions to the climate crisis disadvantage people already struggling – for example, applying carbon taxes can harm rather than help poor communities. Climate justice moves the focus away from individual, consumer-based climate solutions (for example – ‘buy organic food’) to explore deeper societal changes needed.
