To contribute to the struggle for climate justice, the Center for Spatial Justice:
- Embraces a science-based and transdisciplinary approach that emphasizes intersectionality, solidarity, and diversity and keeps radical solutions on the horizon without ignoring the need for a realistic perspective to confront the urgency of the climate crisis;
- Produces and disseminates innovative, qualified, and public knowledge derived from the field, and centered around hope;
- Supports ecological and democratic processes, practices, and living spaces.
With inputs from the field, the Center identifies priority issues, such as connecting the climate crisis with spatial issues, increasing awareness, climate adaptation, empowerment of grassroots movements and communities, and influencing policymakers to respond to the climate emergency. With these priorities in mind, the Center carries out tasks such as compiling best practices, conducting research geared towards social transformation and action, mapping struggles, introducing novel content with videos and podcasts, collecting data and monitoring activities, organizing workshops, seminars, panels to produce and disseminate public information, and creating impact with regards to laws and policies.
