Description

“Climate change is the greatest injustice of our time. The people who are doing least to cause it are suffering the most. Those with most power to address it have so far failed us.”

Concise and peppered with illustrations and graphics, this resource covers all major topics relating to climate justice.

Contents:

  • What is an Activist
  • The causes and effects of climate change
  • The argument for climate justice response
  • What needs to change in Ireland
  • How to demand that global leaders act
  • living and consuming more sustainably
  • Getting your politician to support climate justice
  • Top tips for meeting your politician
  • Get your community involved

The ideas are presented in an attractive and easily readable way. The variety of activities means there is a greater change that there will be ‘something for everyone’ in this toolkit.

Note: the Climate Justice toolkit was developed as part of Trócaire’s Climate Action campaign.
