Climate justice is for everybody. As such, this session will feature powerful contributions from young indigenous speakers as well as representatives from Extinction Rebellion, an activist movement that uses non-violent resistance to protest climate breakdown and biodiversity loss. We will also tune in to the landscape, by listening to the sounds of biodiversity, the water, the soil, and life itself. Together, we will seek to hear what our landscapes have to say. From there, we will brainstorm about how we as humans, indigenous peoples, youth and elderly, women and men, can and should respond. We will begin and end our session with landscape poetry, and even create a collective poem in order to give voice to the landscape and to all living creatures within.
In the months preceding the GLF, participating organizations and individuals will connect, share, learn and act around five themes:
