Frontline Communities lead the struggle

11 December 2015

Parallel to the climate conference in Paris, social movements and allies within the ‘Global Convergence of Land and Water Struggles’ discuss climate justice and real solutions to the climate crisis.

The Convergence and its members underline that this is not about alternatives; it is about real solutions. These real solutions to the climate crisis will not come from the current industrial model, but are anchored in local community practices – and are being developed and lived by communities every day the world over.

The video features social movement representatives and allies talking about the importance of converging struggles on land, water and natural resources.
