Ecological Justice

These groups work to minimise the damage done to the environment and to the planet’s ecosystems, with the longer term goal of undoing it and preventing further damage.

Through promoting alternative transport, animal-free diets, use of renewable energy, use of recyclable materials and much more, these groups hope to achieve positive environmental impacts on a local level and beyond.

By challenging ingrained assumptions about how resources are used and allocated, meaningful and positive change can be achieved.
