2021: Expanding the Repertoire of Community-led Climate Justice Practices

Communities are facing impacts of planetary change that are occurring in the blink of a geological eye. A ‘Repair and Redress’ approach generates knowledge and tools with which communities can respond to environmental damage and create climate accountability. This team will gather representatives from communities facing significant sustainability challenges with non-profit and peer organizers to create a multimedia user’s guide for community climate accountability and a toolkit of design specifications for software platforms to advance community-led climate justice. This work will culminate in a public conference at Cornell and smaller events in the communities involved.
