Climate change impacts will not be felt equally in society. How do we make sure most impacted communities are central to the UK’s response?

About this Event

The climate crisis will unfairly impact some individuals and groups more than others, based on gender, race, class, income, disability and location. Often those least responsible for causing the problem, are most likely to be impacted. Young people will suffer the consequences and costs of inaction by older generations.

With a focus on the UK, this event considers how impacts will be felt unequally and how injustices can be addressed. Calling for the diverse voices of those impacted to be central to our response to the climate crisis. Asking:

  • How and why does the climate crisis impact some people more than others?Who is most impacted?
  • What does climate justice mean in practice?
  • With a focus on the UK, how could the unequal impacts of climate change be addressed?
  • How can the voices of those impacted most by climate change be central to shaping our response?
  • How can the climate movement and utility sectors become more inclusive and diverse?

This event is part of the ‘Together for a Fair Climate Future’ online discussion series.

This series of six open events will focus on how action for the climate crisis and social justice can come together and how to recover from the Covid-9 pandemic in a way that’s fair, innovative, and positive for the environment. Through the events we hope to develop positive, imaginative visions for wellbeing (social, economic, environmental) and practical actions for change. Involving activists, artists, filmmakers, academics, policymakers, utility companies, community organisers, and others.
