Student-led activism for radical climate action

Who are we?

Cambridge Climate Justice (CCJ) is a student-led activist group based in Cambridge, campaigning for climate justice. Our main goal is to hold the university accountable in pursuit of a decolonial, just transition to a sustainable future.

What is Climate Justice?

Climate justice is a concept that addresses the unequal distribution of the effects of, and responsibility for, climate change, noting in particular that people least responsible tend to be most affected.

Climate justice recognises the overlaps between the climate crisis and prominent structural injustices like racism, poverty, sexism and colonialism, therefore approaching climate change as an ethical, legal and political issue, rather than a purely environmental or physical one.
