Root Causes to Climate Change (BMWC at min 21:00). Climate Action Week: People’s Climate Justice Summit. Retrieved October 1, 2014 from.

The Climate Justice Alliance, including the Indigenous Environmental Network and other allies, are planning a two-day People’s Climate Justice Summit concurrent to the Climate Leaders Assembly convened by the UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon in New York City this September. The Summit delegates will convene at the UN Church Center, directly across the street from the UN, and the proceedings will be livestreamed for public viewing at The New School on both days. The purpose of this Summit is to convene a meeting of frontline community delegations from across the U.S. and around the world – that are both organizing against the root causes of climate change, and cultivating real solutions to address these causes. In response to the intransigence of political leaders in industrialized nations and corporations to take bold action, this convening will highlight strategies and pathways for resilience and resistance that are being built on the frontlines of this global economic and ecological crisis.
