8 Facts about #ClimateJustice You Need to Know
#ClimateJustice ⚖️ Did you know that people less responsible for climate change are the most affected by its adverse impacts?
🌳 Indigenous Peoples are deeply connected to their natural environment and heavily rely on it as a food source. Climate change not only destroys their habitat and puts their livelihoods at risk, but also disrupts their connection to wildlife, and threatens their way of life and knowledge-sharing, which can increase the risks of mental health issues.
♀ Because political systems responsible for the climate crisis are patriarchal ones, women are more vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate change. Gender-based discriminations drastically limit their access to decision-making power while it has been demonstrated that when they have equal access to it, they take more sustainable decisions!
👉 Governments must not only implement measures to tackle the climate crisis, but also ensure that those measures do not cause social or environmental harm. In reality, many alleged climate action efforts are based on discriminatory structures, thereby exploiting minorities or marginalized groups, such as Indigenous Peoples.
#WeAreManushyan ♾ Equal Human Beings
🌱 Governments and large businesses must take responsibility and apply a rights-based approach to the climate emergency. They must take action to advance the right to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment, as it has been recognized as a catalyst for changes and progress to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals!
✊🏻 Manushya Foundation calls for a Just, Feminist, Green, and Inclusive Transition. We urge the Thai government to ensure that the human right to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment is respected for all. We want People and the Planet over profit!
