Climate change is a crisis that unfolds differently for communities along the lines of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and other aspects of identity. How can we create the climate futures we want by placing marginalized communities at the center? What role does justice play in that process?
In this keynote, Dr. Sasser explores diverse youth climate activism, the Sunrise Movement, Movement Generation, climate strikers and others, paying particular attention to anti-racist, anti-capitalist, justice-centered approaches. The presentation also thinks through how emotional and mental health support can effectively be centered in an intersectional climate justice approach. Jade argues for creatively drawing on science, art, and racial justice movements as blueprints for imagining and creating hopeful, just climate futures.
