The Durban Group for Climate Justice is an international network of
independent organisations, individuals and people's movements who reject
the approach to climate change promoted by polluting corporations,
financiers, northern governments and economists. Since 2004 we have
provided a platform for discussion and analysis of climate justice, and
our members engage in regular advocacy in favour of real, not false,
solutions to the crisis. We view durable change as emanating primarily
from grassroots and shopfloor movements for climate justice. We aim to
help mobilise communities around the world and pledge solidarity with
people resisting carbon trading across the world.
