People’s Climate Justice Summit

The purpose of the People’s Climate Justice 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.

The New School (http://www.newschool.edu) demonstrates its commitment to climate action and our solidarity with people converging on New York City for the historic People’s Climate March on September 21 with a week-long series of events focused on climate change. As a leader and official endorser of the March, The New School's Climate Action Week includes a diverse set of programming directed towards the university and wider community for enriched learning and engagement opportunities, scholarship, innovation and creativity, solidarity and collective action, and highlighting New School’s values around climate justice and action.

This event is co-sponsored by The New School for Public Engagement (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engagement), the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy (http://www.newschool.edu/milano), Parsons The New School For Design (http://www.newschool.edu/parsons), the Tishman Environment and Design Center (http://www.newschool.edu/tedc), and the Sustainable Cities Club.
