This page has been created to spotlight individuals discussing the environmental movement within communities who are often under-represented. Many organizations have been speaking about climate change in relation to developing nations, people of color, and those of lower socio-economic backgrounds for a long time.
This page is not meant for my voice, but for theirs. This website has tried to be created with inclusivity in mind. However, my view is undeniably limited. If you see anything that could be improved upon in this department, please contact me and let me know. I would like to grow from this experience as much as possible.
“Sadly, the people at greater risk from climate hazards are the poor, the vulnerable and the marginalized who, in many cases, have been excluded from socioeconomic progress,” noted United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the report. “We have no time to waste—and a great deal to gain—when it comes to addressing the socioeconomic inequalities that deepen poverty and leave people behind.”
