As climate change continues to grow and impact our world, so does the response from activists across the world. Climate justice activists take many forms and employ many strategies to effect change in policy of or public opinion on greenhouse gas emissions. Through York University's Academic Innovation Fund dedicated to creating open source, publicly available course content, we've created 6 video segments interviewing grassroots climate justice activists from Toronto, a city with many climate justice organizations and efforts. Here we interview land defenders and organizers Cricket Guest (Instagram: @cricket.guest) and Sam Wong (Instagram: @luvthemutt). We'll discuss the importance of recognizing colonial violence, traditional knowledge, land stewardship, and Indigenous leadership for effective climate justice and action. You can watch the live-recorded Zoom video interviews or read the transcripts recorded in Summer 2020.
