Climate Justice … and rangatahi: How boomers f*#%ed the world and what we can do about it

Will be streamed live to Facebook and put on YouTube after

In 2019 rangatahi around the globe mobilised on a massive scale to demand climate justice. The huge numbers were new, but young people – especially indigenous youth – have been speaking and organising for decades.

The size of the School Strike for Climate movement helped the world focus on issues such as intergenerational climate debt, ageism and even decolonisation as our rangatahi grappled with demanding to be heard in a world which had essentially locked them out of political conversations.

Then came the pandemic which has put the brakes on mass action as we prioritised care for our communities.

So how are our rangatahi organising and taking action now? How are their understandings of colonialism and capitalism informing their mahi and what do they want to see happen in the broader climate justice movement?
