Climate Justice Edmonton
Climate Justice Edmonton is a collective committed to social, environmental and climate justice. We seek to empower individuals and communities to take action on climate change, support Indigenous resistance, and challenge harmful corporate and political practices.
WHO WE ARE
We're climate organizers based out of Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton) on traditional Cree, Blackfoot, Dene, Nakota Sioux, Saulteaux, and Métis Nation territory. Our group consists of educators, workers, students and community organizers (some of which are Greenpeace volunteers as well); Each of us passionate about contributing, in whatever way we can, to the larger, global movement for social, environmental, and climate justice.
We are a movement for social, environmental and climate justice. We seek to empower individuals and communities to take action on climate change, support Indigenous resistance, challenge harmful corporate and political practices, and work towards justice-based solutions.
WHAT WE DO
We work alongside community members and other groups such as Greenpeace Canada to raise our voices against the oppressive and colonial structures that contribute to climate change. Using methods like street theatre, direct action, banner drops, marches, and protests, we listen and share, challenge and defend, critique and promote, rage and celebrate — all together.
We know that Alberta is uniquely positioned as a resource province. We have benefitted and profited from the extraction of fossil fuels, but we know that the cost to communities, our environment, and our shared future is too great to continue. Fossil fuel extraction must stop.
Fortunately, Alberta has huge renewable potential and we know that workers, communities and families can be supported and benefit from a just transition to renewable energy!
