What do you mean by social and climate justice?
We believe that we can only tackle the major challenges of our time by addressing the central question of inequalities, whether it be violence against women or LGBT community members, racism, or climate change. We believe that our life experiences and opportunities vary depending on where we are in the world, our country, and even our neighborhood. They fluctuate based on the financial and socio-cultural capital of the family in which we grew up, our gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnocultural identities (real or perceived), physical and neurological abilities, or age. Therefore, whether it's projects on plastic waste management or access to employment, we always strive to integrate an intersectional prism into our approach. Finally, we subscribe to the idea that there will be no social justice without systemic action: "it is when we break down barriers related to gender, age, ethnic or racial identity, religion, culture, physical or neurological abilities, that social justice comes to life."
