Eco-Justice Collaborative

Solutions that combine environmental, economic and social justice.

Welcome to Eco-Justice Collaborative ...
Ecological responsibility in linkage with social justice is what the world needs now. Healthy earth community requires advocacy and action on urgent environmental issues in ways that connect with struggles for social and economic justice. Eco-Justice envisions and values ecology and justice together, since there will be little environmental health without socio-economic justice, and vice-versa.- Dieter T. Hessel

Sounding the Climate Alarm
Scientists have agreed that limiting global temperature rise to no more than 1.5°C would help us avoid the worst climate impacts and maintain a livable climate.

The last time global surface temperature was sustained at or above 2.5°C higher than 1850–1900 was over 3 million years ago!  Learn more ...

Coal Ash Removal Meetings!
Have you heard? Dynegy is proposing to move its ash! Current plans show they would demolish their power plant and move the coal ash from the floodplain to a new landfill to be constructed on the coal plant's footprint. This is what we all have been asking for!

As part of an interim order agreement with the Illinois Attorney General's Office for coal ash removal, Dynegy was asked to hold a public information meeting in December. These meetings are taking place on December 9, 2021. Click here to read more.
