Event description
Climate justice activists share stories of how grassroots climate solutions can cool the planet and build local power at scale.

About this Event

Please join the CLIMA Fund (a collaboration among Global Greengrants, Grassroots International, Thousand Currents, and the Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Rights) in a conversation with three climate justice movement leaders about how grassroots solutions are cooling the planet & building power and resilience for the long haul.

The climate crisis is escalating and grassroots climate justice movements are rising to meet our global emergency. Join the CLIMA Fund to hear directly from some of those transforming our economies & cultures. The recent report Soil to Sky: Climate Solutions That Work connects the dots between seemingly “small” grassroots solutions, carbon mitigation, and building rights-based resilience for the long-term. It brings together the best available research to demonstrate how funders who have traditionally invested in top-down strategies to the climate crisis can also make lasting, effective, and scalable investments in grassroots-driven responses. This webinar will bring human stories to these responses: from agroecology and direct resistance of extractive industries to community-controlled renewables and Indigenous rights defense.

Speakers:

  1. Kandi White, Indigenous Environmental Network, North America
  2. Brenda Muronda, La Via Campesina, Zimbabwe
  3. Paula Giolo, La Via Campesina, Germany
