Creative Climate Justice

The Creative Climate Justice programme uncovers the root causes of the climate crisis through social, political and environmental injustice lenses and explores creative responses.

The structure of capitalist extraction is the root cause, and injustice is the living consequence, of the climate and ecological crisis. Justice is also the solution. At Julie’s Bicycle, we aim to weave climate justice through all of our work, and this is just the start.

What is Climate Justice?

The effects of climate change are unevenly distributed on local, national and global levels, so it’s not enough to focus on the environmental and physical science of climate change for solutions – we also need to examine the interconnectedness of economic, political and ethical issues surrounding the causes and impacts of climate change and act accordingly.

Climate justice is both a framework to address historical responsibility for carbon emissions and reduce further climate and ecological damage, and a movement that seeks to redress the systems of power that continue to extract from, oppress and harm people and planet. Climate justice is deeply connected to racial justice, gender and disability, labour rights, land justice, the rights of nature, and environmental justice.

Creative Climate Justice

Creative Climate Justice is Julie’s Bicycle’s invitation for in-depth and inclusive conversations about justice and fairness, why marginalised groups around the world are disproportionately impacted by the climate and environmental crisis and our creative responses to this.
