In order to prevent global temperatures from rising above dangerous thresholds, we urgently need to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and transition toward renewable energy. A socially-just response to climate change requires an equitable transition from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy, while redressing past harms and creating new alliances. The Climate Alliance Mapping Project (CAMP) works with indigenous and environmental organizations to build climate justice story maps in the Amazon basin and the United States. Come and join this interactive presentation where we will explore CAMP's story maps and think about how to tell our own climate just stories through this new web platform.
