Journeys for Climate Justice (JCJ) is an innovative Australian not-for-profit organisation tackling climate change issues in the Asia Pacific Region. We aim to address the inequitable impacts of climate change, which fall on communities that contributed least to the problem and have few resources to cope. As an alternative to carbon offsetting, we enable people who fly to or over the Asia-Pacific to support innovative projects that build momentum for change. JCJ funds the training of youth environmental leaders and supports campaigns for 100% renewables in the Asia-Pacific.
Through projects that are catalysts for behavioural change in the Asia Pacific, JCJ :
- Trains youth leaders to empower them locally, and supports their projects
- Works in partnership with local Asia-Pacific organisations
- Raises awareness of climate change issues and promotes measures to mitigate emissions
- Empowers and supports vulnerable communities to adapt to the impacts of climate change
- Raises funds by providing meaningful alternatives to carbon offsets, particularly for people who fly
- Supports activities for zero carbon emissions
JCJ became an Incorporated Association in January 2011, and was launched in March by Victoria’s then Governor Professor David de Kretser AC. We are run by a team of passionate and dedicated volunteers, operating on minimal overheads. We rely on ordinary Australians and members of the International community to fund our highly acclaimed projects.
We warmly welcome any new members, volunteers and supporters. Join via the Donate page. Membership is $30 in countries like Australia, and $10 in countries like Sri Lanka, Bangadesh, Vietnam and the Pacific Islands.
