Social Movements and Climate Change

Social Justice

The Issue

Social movements and climate change are inherently intertwined. A society’s action or inaction to address this global threat is influenced by population perceptions. Enacting change requires communicating with populations globally about the way current industries impact the environment and raising awareness of how pollution and climate change impact health and livelihoods. Effective communication approaches and cross-disciplinary education are needed to draw attention to the climate crisis and stimulate change.
