Challenging Colonialism, Capitalism, & Extractivism for Environmental Justice

Climate and environmental groups frequently highlight that marginalised communities in the Global South are the most affected by climate and environmental injustice. But why is this? (Hint: it’s about the relationships between colonialism, racism, extractivism and capitalism!) Understanding the root causes of injustice is important when taking action. And what does that really mean for environmental activists in practice? Join us for a talk and interactive group discussion on these interrelated issues.

About the facilitator: Sian is a freelance writer, journalist and educator. She has spent years working on environmental issues in Ireland and Latin America, and her passion is organising for social justice.
