AGENDA

A matter of intergenerational justice

We believe that climate justice has everything to do with social justice or social development, in order to transform and sustainably develop our communities, in the context of climate change, we must achieve the following:

Climate justice

Climate justice is a term used for framing climate change as an ethical and political issue. It links climate policies to human rights and sustainable development, safeguarding the rights of the most vulnerable people and sharing the burdens and benefits of climate change and climate policies equally and fairly. Climate justice also refers to intergenerational equity and the full, equal and meaningful participation of youth in all climate related processes, platforms and actions. It refers to striving for environmental justice, justice to nature, gender equality and the protection and promotion of human rights for all. It is also encompassing of the voices of indigenous peoples, access to sustainable energy for all, and a just transition for those whose jobs or livelihoods are threatened by ambitious climate policies.

Intergenerational Equity

Intergenerational equity refers to the full, equal and meaningful participation of youth in all activities, processes and platforms for climate action. Intergenerational equity is an integrated approach, concerning the well being and equity of current and future generations, who most likely will face difficult living conditions in a changing climate, but who are not responsible for causing them.

Human rights

Human rights-based approaches address adverse impacts of climate change that threaten the human rights of climate vulnerable people. The government must ensure the fulfillment of its obligations with regard to the respect for and protection of human rights standards and human rights principles.
