Environment. The movement is a citizen network to accelerate the fight against climate change.

The common concern over climate change has led to a group of individuals, social entities and ecologists from different backgrounds creating the Moviment per la Justícia Climàtica (MJC) [Movement for Climate Justice]. This citizen network aims to develop a profile across Catalonia and starts out with the aim of offering feasible alternatives to the current socio-economic model and pressuring governing bodies to take drastic and necessary steps to tackle this serious environmental issue.

The movement wants its work to go beyond the climate conference. To present its demands, the Moviment per la Justícia Climàtica has organised 2 initial actions. Firstly a forum on specific socio-economic alternatives in Catalonia to halt climate change, which will be held on 21 November at the Casal de Barri Pou de la Figuera, and secondly a worldwide climate march on 29 November to coincide with other marches on the same day in various cities around the world.

The movement is open to all citizen entities and individuals wanting to join.
