Amplifying Voices for Just Climate Action
Initiative under the Power of Voices framework
The Climate Crisis that we are facing has no frontiers. We believe it is only possible to foster a just transition to low-carbon and climate-resilient futures with a new level of civil society leadership. This is what Voices for Just Climate Action stand for.
What is the Voices for Just Climate Action programme about?
Climate change is not just purely environmental or physical in nature. It’s also an ethical and political issue, framed as climate justice. We believe it is possible to foster a just transition to low-carbon and climate-resilient futures with a new level of civil society leadership. This will require a renegotiation of already unequal rights and a reimagination of the relationship between people and nature.
Local and global voices
Our Alliance brings together global and local voices by connecting four strong Southern CSOs with two Northern CSOs. Together we have a deep understanding of climate issues, international reach in public and private spheres, experience in capacity strengthening for lobbying and advocacy, strong women’s rights, gender and inclusion programmes and involvement in climate finance mechanisms.
Add your voice to the Panda growl for Climate Justice
Climate Justice has no frontiers. Diversity and collaboration make climate action powerful. WWF-NL is actively working to put locally-shaped climate action at the center of the global climate debate. We do this together with our strategic partners from the VCA Alliance. In the Netherlands, WWF is set to create awareness and spur public debate, working closely with our Alliance partner Hivos.
