Building a strong, participatory, democratic movement for climate justice means ensuring spaces are safe, inclusive and accessible for all. Solutions addressing the climate crisis must also benefit and uphold the human rights of disabled people.

One in five Western Australians has a disability, including intellectual, mental health, cognitive, sensory or physical impairment, along with neurological differences. So, regardless of our work or community role, we can assume that most of us will have some interactions with people with a disability as colleagues, clients or stakeholders.

This training, available to Climate Justice Union members and other leaders in the climate movement, will provide an understanding of different types of disability and will look at how we can go beyond compliance to create places, programs and communities that are universally accessible and celebrate diverse strengths.

Along with developing an understanding of disability and what it means today, this course develops inclusive attitudes and challenges outdated assumptions.

This program is funded by the Department of Communities through the EMPOWER project and has been developed in consultation with people with disabilities.

We acknowledge that we begin our work as The Climate Justice Union on the Boodja (land) of the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We honour the Wadjuk people and their kin in other Nations and Country across these lands and waters, who have always cared for this place and all who lived here.

We acknowledge First Nations Elders past and present, and acknowledge that those of us living here, who came from across the seas, live on land that was taken, stolen. We acknowledge the responsibility that comes with this understanding and that we personally and collectively benefit from this theft.

As such, we all have a responsibility to decolonise ourselves, our lives and work, and to heal the harm these oppressive systems have inflicted.
