A Just Transition = Indigenous Self-Determination

Transition is inevitable. Justice is not. The push for a sustainable transition predominantly centers “green” technologies that continue to threaten the self-determination and sovereignty of Indigenous peoples worldwide. Instead, a just future depends on centering Indigenous-led, place-based climate solutions and supporting intersectional efforts to guarantee the rights of all people.

Join the Securing Indigenous Peoples’ Rights in the Green Economy (SIRGE) Coalition and A Growing Culture to learn about how Indigenous and peasant leaders are taking action to hold companies accountable to human rights commitments through the supply chain.
