The journey of Our Village

“The power to question is the basis of all human progress.” – Indira Gandhi.

Since 2014 at our events we have been asking questions that resonate with our passion to heal the earth. We believe the earth is only healed through healing people and that is why our questions revolve around climate justice, racial justice, land stewardship and understanding solutions through open dialogue. ‘Our Village’ is our space to have this dialogue and we hope that the power of these questions will support you, as it has us, to progress, to heal our planet and to know what it is to be human – If Not Us Then Who?

What is climate justice?

The systems of oppression that we all live in right now are based in domination and they are all interconnected. Only by tackling the systemic violence that is embodied in capitalism, racism, sexism and others can we truly fight the climate crisis

How to transform the system?

Those most affected by the climate crisis are also those with the least power to decide and act on it. Tackling climate justice demands a shift in power, not only to repair frontline communities, but also to make sure that those who negotiate, sign and approve are also those most knowledgeable of what needs to be done to stop the crisis.

How do we diversify climate voices?

Racialized, feminized voices have been silenced and to tackle oppression, we must put those voices at the center of climate action and diversify the channels and mechanisms through which we communicate solutions

What unites us?

What unites us is the powerful resilience, innovative action, and transformative spirit with which local communities worldwide are addressing climate change. Through OUR VILLAGE, individuals from diverse backgrounds are welcomed to a community driven by justice and a shared connection to the Earth.
