The programme is expanding to address issues of climate change and mobilize for environmental justice which will protect the natural resources and foster equity.
Climate change is increasingly impacting on the poor and working class with extended droughts and floods crippling agriculture and food production, jeopardizing homes and livelihoods and forcing people to buy potable water. Youth are beginning to join the resistance against rampant development and extractive industries which impact on their future and natural resources, most particularly water. The promises of job creation and economic development and lack of meaningful public participation divide and undermine community resistance. SCLC will use all engagements across all programmes to disseminate latest information around developments and raise critical awareness.
