Are we all going to be climate refugees one day?
Can eating a completely plant-based diet, taking public transportation, travelling by train rather than plane, and shopping at thrift stores rather than fast fashion brands really prevent this from happening?
What do individual choices mean if they aren’t centred on solidarity and collective action?
Can we say that if we don’t start voting for governments whose priority is to transition to a zero-carbon world and renewable economy, nothing will change?
This month we looked into the root causes of the climate refugee crisis and its relationship with the fossil fuel industry. The fingerprints of fossil fuels seem to be at almost every crime scene that has led to the forced displacement of people. We used fun and creative writing exercises to help us break down these questions into small chunks so we could fully understand them.
* During the workshop we will be making a film and taking photos that will appear later on this website and in our social media platforms. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in them.
