We support justice and equity approaches to climate change and stand in solidarity with principles of environmental justice and climate justice. We are part of a larger community of data justice, which works in all societal areas to promote and adhere to the principles and practices of informed consent, and to provide broad access to useful data, including data that can be used to show discriminatory and inegalitarian practices.
Environmental and Human Health
We believe that it is essential for environmental governance to be designed to support environmental and human health for present and future generations, rather than to protect business interests and bureaucracies.
We are committed to respectfully recognizing and struggling together with differences created by race, gender, ethnicity, ability, citizenship, class, sexual orientation, and technological access.
Anti-Fascism, Anti-Racism, Anti-Oppression
We stand against all forms of oppression, racism, and inequality.
We believe that people have the right to know about the status of and factors influencing their environment and its management. Information about the environment, environmental research, and environmental policies must be easily found and provided with proper context to make the information legible to the public.
Responsivity and Proactivity
We promote an honest + nimble response to pressing issues, and proactive construction of more just environmental governance. We think it is important for agencies and organizations to continually re-assess their models for data collection, storage, dissemination, and collaboration to allow for innovative and proactive improvements to environmental management and governance.
We promote collaborative, horizontal, transparent, and participatory knowledge-making and governance. We think it is important for funding mechanisms and advisory committees for both public and private bodies to include affected laypeople on their teams in order to ensure broad participation.
