#Decarbonize:#Decolonize PROJECT SUMMARY Indigenous peoples are presenting a critical voice in the developing global conversation around climate change. They are speaking out and taking action against the current and historical activities of dominant industrialized societies, whose current and historical activities have caused most of the climate impacts – impacts that are felt particularly strongly by Indigenous peoples, who are more vulnerable to climate instability due to centuries of oppressive policies. At the same time, Indigenous peoples are also expressing their own social-ecological resilience in the face of climate instability and engaging in climate policy-making, contributing their unique voice within the planetary community. Harnessing digital technology and the power of collaboration, our goal is to connect intersectional global conversations and meaningful action on climate change along with colonial and corporate power structures. Honoring traditional Indigenous knowledge, understanding hidden histories and implementing informed action to support front line communities, this global mobilization aims to engage youth in a deep understanding of power structures at play in climate change policy.
