The Climate Issue


Despite the radical warnings over 30 years ago, climate chaos is accelerating at an unprecedented pace and severity. Yet debates about the legitimacy of climate change are deaf to the very catastrophe of climate crisis. Here, we shine a much-needed light on the pivotal intersection of climate action and community engagement and what communities and local governments can – and are – doing at a local level around the globe to combat government inaction.

“Community engagement has the power to communicate the irreversible risks that climate chaos poses in a tangible way. This can impact the at ‘arms-length’ thinking that obfuscates the urgency of climate chaos competing with seemingly more immediate issues.”
