Communicating climate justice with young adults in Europe

By Climate Outreach on November 10, 2022

The concept of climate justice brings a lens of social equity and historical responsibility to climate change, and an increasingly powerful movement is calling for reparations for loss and damages resulting from climate change.

But what do young people across Europe think about climate justice, and what do they understand about reparations for loss and damage, and about systemic change and power? What do they feel about and how do they respond to messaging which focuses on these issues?

The report – ‘Communicating climate justice with young adults in Europe’ – is the culmination of a two-year research project drawing on a survey of over 6,000 young adults and 20 in-depth workshops across a number of European countries.

Robin Webster and Dr Amiera Sawas – with a guest introduction from Daze Aghaji, a climate justice activist – share key insights from this report, and provide clear recommendations for how advocates can more effectively and powerfully communicate climate justice.

These outputs are part of SPARK, a four-year European Union funded project to build the awareness, capacity and active engagement of European Union citizens, particularly young adults, with efforts to bring about climate justice. SPARK is delivered by a consortium of 20 civil society organisations across 13 European countries. See:
