The Climate Justice Coalition exists to strengthen and support a movement of movements across the Britain and internationally. We support groups, organisations and networks to connect across climate justice in active solidarity. We bring together groups who have a diversity of tactics and theories of change to complement one another and work together.
We work to shift organisations from a narrow climate lens to a broader climate justice lens – to ensure ‘climate justice’ retains its meaning, nuance and substance within global discourse. We also help people to connect the local, national and international context, as well as providing and signposting to learning opportunities for developing tactics.
We bring groups together to facilitate collective moments of action.
We amplify the work of member organisations and other groups/individuals working on climate justice.
Trade Union Caucus
Our Trade Union Caucus brings together reps, officials and members across the trade union movement. Together we facilitate education and campaigning as trade unionists for climate justice and a just transition.
Migrant Justice Caucus
Our Migrant Justice Caucus works in collaboration with groups from both movements we are building the intersection between climate and migrant justice by facilitating solidarity at the national and local community levels of action and advocacy.
In 2019, the COP26 Coalition was set up – the first UK wide coalition that centred justice in the climate movement. This was set up by War on Want, Friends of the Earth Scotland and the Global Campaign to Demand Climate Justice, using their experience in bringing together groups and mobilising. While the first task of this coalition was to respond to COP26 in Glasgow, the goal was build capacity for the climate justice movement for the longer term. Post-COP26, the need for continued convening of climate justice groups was evident. In 2022, ahead of COP27, we transitioned into the Climate Justice Coalition.
Over the last few years, together we have helped build an intersectional movement that has brought climate justice from the fringes to the centre of every struggle. Hundreds of thousands of people across the world mobilised under radical demands for urgent and just solutions to the climate crisis. We continued to ensure that Indigenous, frontline and Global South communities are front and centre, to amplify their voices and demands. Because of our collective vision and action, the climate justice movement is more powerful, educated and connected than ever before.
