Introduction to Climate Justice is a booklet created by Young Friends of the Earth Scotland as an accessible intro to this crucial concept – created by young people, for young people.

This easy to read A5 booklet is aimed at young people aged 14-25, though we hope anyone aged 14+ finds it useful. Filled with beautiful illustrations, it introduces the core principles of climate justice, exploring the roots of the climate crisis, how it intersects with other injustices, and what we need to centre justice in our struggles for a better future.

It is accompanied by a further reading list which includes articles, podcasts and videos, and an activity which you can use with your group to explore these concepts together.

The booklet is available for digital download below, and you can also request physical copies for your group – whether that’s a climate group, a youth group, a class or something else. To request physical copies please email crandall@foe.scot.

If you would like to learn more about the creation of this resource, check out this blog featuring Hannah and Meli, two of the young authors of the booklet.
