Forgotten voices in the green transition

Already marginalized communities are often the ones who bear the brunt of today's climate crisis, but still their perspectives are frequently ignored or overlooked by the decision-makers behind the green transition. 

In this episode we ask how communities can be empowered to fight for climate justice. How do we all ensure that their views are taken into account by politicians and the climate movement? And what role does legal action have to play?

This episode comes from a Nordic Talks online event, arranged by the non-profit organization Diversify.


“The groups worst hit by the climate crisis don’t talk about the future, they talk about now.”
