Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
Cultivating Climate Justice
This four-part article series “Cultivating Climate Justice” tells the stories of community groups on the frontlines of the pollution, waste and climate crises, working together for systems change. United across six continents, these grassroots groups are defending community rights to clean air, clean water, zero waste, environmental justice, and good jobs. They are all members of the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives.
GAIA is a worldwide alliance of more than 800 grassroots groups, non-governmental organizations, and individuals in over 90 countries whose ultimate vision is a just, toxicfree world without incineration. GAIA's greatest strength lies in its membership, which includes some of the most active leaders in environmental health and justice struggles internationally.
Worldwide, we are demonstrating how to stop incinerators, address climate change and environmental injustice, and implement zero waste alternatives. GAIA's members work through a combination of grassroots organizing, strategic alliances, and creative approaches to local economic development.
This series is produced in collaboration with Other Worlds. Other Worlds inspires hope and knowledge that another world is possible, and helps build it by shedding light on political, economic, social, and environmental alternatives that are flourishing throughout the world. The series can be viewed online on GAIA’s blog, www.zerowasteworld.org ;
