SUPPORTING CLIMATE JUSTICE IN PAKISTAN

CSIDC is partnering with AktivAsia (activist educators and facilitators passionate about activist learning), to pilot a training program to strengthen the leadership and organizing capacity of local campaigns and groups working on climate and energy, recognizing that the problems of climate may be intrinsically connected to other issues. 

Through designing and executing a set of learning experiences for Pakistan based movements and organizing groups and individuals who work on Climate Justice, we aim to:

  1. Build relationships between Pakistan based non-profit and activist groups who work on Climate Justice

  2. Center people in climate change discourse through supporting the voices and highlighting experiences of those most impacted by the climate crisis 

  3. Enable a transformation towards sustainability and equity between and within societies through mainstreaming the climate justice approach to community organizing and movement building on climate change.

We are also designing and leading a pan-asian learning experience for 30 women leaders from CSOs and social movements in Asia in order to strengthen feminist leadership and mainstream gender justice in the climate change activism ecosystem.
