This is the home of the Environment Committee Working Group.
Many of the policies of NATO and G8 strongly negatively affect the environment and the world’s natural resources. We are committed to opposing the harmful effects and shining a light on the destructive nature of these policies.
Make sure to read the Vision Statement and Call to Action from the Environmental Committee:
“Another World Is Possible: Peaceful, Equitable & Sustainable!”
We stand in solidarity with rural and urban communities of the global North and South who are exposed to the hazards of climate change; ecological degradation and contamination; and land and resource grabs. We believe in food, resource and climate justice rooted in sustainability and democracy. We call on activists, concerned citizens, farmers, indigenous peoples and environmentalists to join us in Chicago in non-violent protest of the closed-door NATO and G8 summits and to participate in an open, civil society discussion of the G8’s environmental impacts and community-based alternatives.
