Climate change is a “threat multiplier”, worsening existing vulnerabilities and injustices. Its effects on people is different, based on race, gender, class, and socio-economic status. For the climate community, an intersectional approach means going beyond framing climate change merely as a scientific problem or reinforcing quick technological fixes. Therefore, solutions to climate change need to be people centred, inclusive and holistic instead of deepening existing hierarchies.
Finding a common ground to start a conversation instead of diving into science is more important to drive climate action.
