Climate Justice Circles
Youth United For our Planet
Climate change is one of the foremost issues facing our global community today. Youth within Kids4Peace Boston identify it as a primary issue for their own social justice concerns. We are called to collectively care for creation, both through our own faith identities and together as an interfaith community. Through taking action in climate justice circles, youth will have the opportunity to positively impact their communities toward this end.
Climate justice Circles investigate how climate change is manifesting in their local context, as well as on a global scale. They explore the human impact on the climate and the role that humans have in calming changing climate and environmental systems. With that knowledge, youth are equipped to narrow their scope toward their own communities, identifying a particular need where their voices can help make the world more just. As a group, they either work to advocate and lobby their legislators, or develop and implement a service project, making a tangible impact towards creating a sustainable future for us all.
Beginning from their very first meeting, young people build relationships together across differences within the K4PB community at large and within their small group. These interpersonal skills serve them well as they go on to organize, advocate, and serve within the Boston community. Collegiate mentors will facilitate our small groups, joining us from MIT Addir Fellows and Boston College’s PULSE Program for Service Learning.
