Event description
Join Freedom Challenge 2020 workshop: Introduction to Indigenous & Disability Rights for Climate Justice!

About this Event

Human rights are as much under threat as the environment when it comes to climate change. It’s why within Freedom Challenge 2020 we’ll be “Shouting out for climate justice”

To make that action effective and powerful we are hosting on and offline workshops with some of New Zealand and the Pacific’s best youth climate justice advocates. They’ll be offering insights and knowledge on how together we can better stand up for the rights of this planet and the people on it. Workshops will include creative and practical ways to get involved, build support, and ignite action!

Join Kera Sherwood-O'Regan via zoom to discuss Introduction to Indigenous & Disability Rights for Climate Justice.

About the event

Indigenous and Disabled People are already on the frontlines of climate change, but they also have solutions to build a climate safe future for us all. Come to this 90 minute workshop to learn how your climate action can uphold indigenous and disability rights, and what you can do to make the climate movement more inclusive and accessible for frontline communities.
