It’s only natural that those who are the most affected by the climate crisis take the lead.
The most affected are the people who have contributed the least to the climate crisis and degradation of nature, been the most affected by these processes and had little influence to rebalance this injustice.
They are the frontliners: the planet’s youth, refugees and territorial frontliners.
Their shared self-interest is life in equal dignity with the rest of the human family. Leave no one behind, say the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. When will leaders lead, asked Mia Mottley Prime Minister of Barbados at COP26 in Glasgow.
Frontliners can turn their vulnerability into collective leadership.
Uniting in a trans-territorial self-help community, frontliners can make themselves equal with their fellow humans. That is why InterCivil is taking the FrontLead Initiative: Frontline Leadership for a climate justice of equals.
