We have all heard about climate change, but did you know that there is a fight for justice within this claim?
Climate justice is more than just a demand for the stop of wrongful damage to the environment. It goes deeper into the tangible effects of climate change and the way they are unequally effecting the world’s population.
According to the Center on Global Justice at UC San Diego, “Climate Justice links human rights and development to achieve a human-centered approach, safeguarding the rights of the most vulnerable and sharing the burdens and benefits of climate change and its resolution equitably and fairly. Climate justice is informed by science, responds to science, and acknowledges the need for equitable stewardship of the world’s resources.”
Mary Robinson was the first woman president of Ireland and has served as the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. She has been a long standing icon for social justice and has recently devoted her attention to campaigning for climate justice.
Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the former President of Ireland Mary Robinson shares her vision of climate justice, which links human rights to science in order to protect vulnerable populations and foster equitable stewardship of the world’s resources.
