Thanks to your support, we have been able to gain momentum on our Climate + Gender Justice projects. We’ve been planning around COVID-19 and building our virtual teams around two major activities: 1) a virtual training program on climate and gender justice in Micronesia and 2) a life with dignity project to support legal protections for those displaced by climate change and environmental degradation.
Micronesia Training Development
We have been working closely with the Micronesia Climate Change Alliance (MCCA) to develop the curriculum for our virtual climate justice and human rights training program. The 3-day workshop will be entirely virtual and will bring together 12 young Indigenous leaders from across Micronesia. The program will also pair them with a mentor and provide a micro-grant to support their own community-based project towards sustainability and human rights.
Life with Dignity & Predictive Modeling
In our life with dignity project, we have brought together a team of climate scientists, lawyers, technologists, and social scientists to support climate justice on an international scale. We are working to connect the concept of the “right to life with dignity” from international human rights law to bolster protections for those displaced by climate change and environmental degradation. Over the past couple months, we have been conducting legal research and collaborating with Indigenous leaders from the Pacific to develop the framework for this research.
