The People’s Health Hearing seeks to bear witness to the public health impacts of extractive industries, create a space that connects to people’s struggles and set out a vision for intersectional, transformative climate justice. It is a space for movement building, connecting health and climate activists across the world and laying the roots for ongoing organising.
We will hear people and communities at the frontlines of extractivism share testimonies of how these industries are devastating people’s health, share stories of hope and how communities are resisting.
Weaving together the testimonies, the hearing will close with reflections from Listeners, who will bring in their own experiences of resistance and organising as part of the wider health and climate justice movements.
The People’s Health Hearing will be online as part of the COP 26 Coalition’s People’s Summit for Climate Justice, which will run from the 7th – 10th November. The Health Hearing is on the 7th November.
