School strike for climate assembly

An assembly plan to engage your pupils on the school strikes for climate.  This assembly plan offers an opportunity to explore the issues around climate justice within school, to acknowledge the power of our young people, and to listen seriously to their voices and let them know that they are heard and that adults are listening. It also offers the opportunity to gently introduce those young people who do not know much about environmental issues to some of the questions raised by the school climate strikes.

Gender lens to the UN Treaty on Business and Human Rights briefing

In this briefing, ACT Alliance sets out its analysis and recommendations concerning the UN Treaty on Business and Human Rights ahead of the negotiations taking place in October 2019.  Business principles do not always converge with human rights principles. In various dimensions, from violence against women, to women’s economic participation, to tax, trade and investment, the gendered disparities are not resolved uniquely by market participation and growth dynamics. In fact, the growth-based model often puts women and other individuals who are marginalised in disadvantageous positions, ie, trapped in poverty, in unequal power relations and subject to abuse and violence. We believe that in order to ensure respect for human rights, we need binding rules on business and human rights at all levels, including respect for human rights, conducting meaningful human rights due diligence and adequate reporting, as well as access to remedy for victims of human rights abuses.

An economy of life briefing

An economy of life: How transforming the economy can tackle inequalities, bring climate justice and build a sustainable future Our vision is that global institutions genuinely represent and are accountable to the interests of everyone, not just the rich and powerful. This means confronting the institutional structures, including the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), cultural norms and power imbalances that work together to maintain the status quo. We need to look for new expressions of economic life. Measures of economic growth overlook human and environmental wellbeing. It is time re-evaluate. This briefing challenges the World Bank and IMF to be part of this change and to become of a progressive and positive force in an economic future that leaves no one behind and is beneficial for nature and the climate.

The second level suggests actions that that can help cut carbon emissions, and the last level explains what effect taking action could have. Space (in the dotted area) has been left for you to write in one of your own ideas about an action that could help reduce carbon emissions. Space (in the striped area) has been left for you to write in what effect that action could have.
