Addressing the challenge together
Ecological destruction, including climate change, has resulted from the exploitation of human labor and the extraction of natural resources for the benefit of few people.
Climate change is a matter of social justice because people who have done less to cope with the problem are those who are suffering first and most of their effects including droughts, floods, fires, of sea levels, stronger storms, heat waves, and melting of glaciers and permafrost. These effects are particularly difficult for low-income populations who have few resources to relocate, cover higher food costs and respond as needed to changing conditions and extreme weather events.
The Regeneration group aims to design local solutions from the perspective of people in the Pájaro Valley who are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, such as agricultural workers. Agricultural workers are personally and economically affected, by heat waves and the use of pesticides and because of crop losses related to the waves of growing conditions.
Regeneration is a work group formed by a diverse section of our community, parents, students, agricultural workers, educators and entrepreneurs.
Plans for 2017:
Our first stage is to convene community talks to raise awareness about the effects of climate change on our local population in order to create solutions cul - structurally appropriate. We will also establish an online presence.More news: Tea rose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
We will launch three pilot projects later in 2017.
Some ideas we are considering include employer-sponsored transportation for peasants at work, a community mural with a theme of ecology and resistance, and neighborhood events - for families with manual activities and information on ways to reduce carbon emissions.
We believe our community has the potential to respond together and realize that we share a vision of a just, prosperous community
