    • A Just Transition (e.g. global green new deals, labor rights, equitable transportation)
    • Indigenous Climate Action (e.g. intact forests, indigenous governance, biodiversity)
    • Nature-Based Solutions (e.g. forests, regenerative agriculture, wetlands)
    • Community Resilience & Adaptation (e.g. food sovereignty, energy democracy)
  • A practical toolkit of frameworks to drive social change, and an understanding of how these practices are used across:
    • Climate change mitigation and adaptation sectors (e.g. energy, agriculture, buildings, transportation, resilience planning)
    • Change mechanisms (e.g. policies, products, services)
    • Fields (e.g. governments, business, NGOs, citizen activism)
    • Levels (e.g. local, regional, national, international)
    • Regions in North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean
  • Your personal Climate Justice Action Plan, in which you leverage your skills, interests, and spheres of influence to take action and contribute to the global movement for climate action centered on justice.
  • Connections with experts in the field and on the frontlines, and other emerging climate justice practitioners through group activities and participation in an ongoing community on Slack after the workshop.
