Watch and Learn: Climate justice starts with empowering communities

At COP26, world leaders are debating our climate future; however, right now, communities that are currently affected by environmental harm are being neglected and the role that grassroots movements play in protecting the environment is being ignored.

Watch Lifting a Curse, a short documentary from our Recovery Plan for the World partners, Namati, profiling environmental justice and community mobilization in action.

Watch and share this video to raise awareness about legal empowerment and environmental justice!
