Exploring Inclusivity and Climate Justice
The world is facing a decisive moment in the battle against climate change–one that requires bringing a range of voices and perspectives to the table. Climate change is inextricably linked to the challenge of creating a more equitable world. It is impossible to tackle climate change without also tackling inequality. Everyone deserves a clean and healthy environment. This is a critical moment to define bold and equitable climate solutions that address the legacy of environmental racism in the U.S. Join Parker McMullen Bushman as she talks about what it means to have inclusive climate action and how we can develop solutions to tackle climate change with an equity mindset.
