Celebrate 2022 International Open Access Week (Oct. 24 - Oct. 30) – Tackling Climate Injustice
Department(s):George C. Gordon Library
“Climate change is a threat to everyone’s physical health, mental health, air, water, food and shelter, but some groups—socially and economically disadvantaged ones—face the greatest risks. This is because of where they live, their health, income, language barriers, and limited access to resources. In the U.S., these more vulnerable communities are largely the communities of color, immigrants, low-income communities and people for whom English is not their native language. As time goes on, they will suffer the worst impacts of climate change, unless we recognize that fighting climate change and environmental justice are inextricably linked.” [https://news.climate.columbia.edu/2020/09/22/climate-change-environmental-justice/ ]

Climate (in)justice is ongoing, the climate emergency unrepentant. In this panel we explore how actions and activists might be better informed and empowered if access to climate science was open and accessible.
