Youth around the world are organizing climate strikes, leading restoration projects, joining learning programs and trailblazing with innovative technologies to address climate change.

But what does climate justice really mean in practice? And how can its pursuit be inclusive of everyone, everywhere?
To dive into these questions and more, we spoke with Joycelyn Longdon, a PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge and founder of Climate in Colour, an online education platform and community that makes climate conversations more diverse and accessible.
