A New Era of the Climate Justice Movement by Isha Clarke

This keynote talk was given at the 2019 Bioneers Conference. With Isha Clarke. To build a successful global climate movement, we must prioritize the voices of those most impacted by environmental injustice. We must recognize that our current climate crisis is rooted in racism, white supremacy, and greed. We must also resist efforts to tokenize the term “intersectionality” rather than actually implementing it in our movements and daily lives. What would a movement and a society functioning on a genuine understanding of intersectionality look like? To learn more about Isha Clarke, visit Youth vs. Apocalypse.

Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges.

Why you should be a climate activist | Luisa Neubauer

"I dream of a world where geography classes teach about the climate crisis as this one great challenge that was won by people like you and me," says climate activist Luisa Neubauer. With Greta Thunberg, Neubauer helped initiate "Fridays For Future," the momentous international school strike movement that protests the lack of action on the climate crisis. She shares four first steps that anyone, regardless of age, can take to become a climate activist. "This is not a job for a single generation. This is a job for humanity," she says.

Climate emergency: underneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge

This is Laura. Earlier today, Laura was suspended below the Sydney Harbour Bridge to call attention to our climate emergency.

Laura grew up just down the road from an open cut coal mine, and she’s seen first-hand the effects of coal on her community’s health. That’s why she’s calling on Scott Morrison to declare a climate emergency and make the shift away from dirty coal.
