An intersectional primer for saving the planet: place-based perspectives and community-led tools for fighting climate change
For readers of The Intersectional Environmentalist and All We Can Save
In Climate Resilience, climate justice and resilience strategist Kylie Flanagan invites us to see and act beyond: beyond status-quo solutions, Big Tech promises, and everything we’ve been told about saving the planet.
Centering the voices of Native Rights activists, queer liberation ecologists, youth climate-justice organizers, Latinx wilderness activists, and others on the front lines, Climate Resilience urges us toward a vision of climate care that invests in place-based, community-led projects focused on:
- Relationship Repair
- Ecological Restoration
- Economic Regeneration
- Collective Care
- Community Adaptation
- Cultural Strategy
- People Power
Each section offers practical blueprints for engaging with different aspects of climate-change action through mutual aid, seed-saving, community-owned energy, community safety plans, and more, and includes a range of ideas for readers to apply these strategies in their own communities.
