This podcast will cover a wide range of issues connected to Climate Justice, everything from how to get involved, to climate anxiety and solidarities across movements. Our goal is to engage Climate Justice Radio listeners in the co-creation of the climate justice movement that is playful, accessible and intersectional. We’ll be highlighting local stories of organizing, art making and community building.


Divestment Generation Mini Series – Episode 1 Climate Justice Radio

This is Episode 1 of the  “Divestment Generation” mini series, a five episode series exploring the 9 year campaign to win fossil fuel divestment at the University of Toronto! In Episode 1, creators and co-hosts Amanda Harvey-Sánchez and Julia DaSilva speak with “First Gen” divestment organizers – those who were active during the campaign from its inception in 2012 until 2014, around the time of the People’s Climate March in New York City. Our “First Gen” guests are Stuart Basden, Monica Resendes, and Milan Ilnyckyj. In our song segment, CJTO member Rebecca and participants from CJTO’s September 2022 Orientation lead you in the first two verses of a special adaptation of the movement song  “Which Side Are You On?”, originally by Pete Seeger. Stay tuned for further episodes in the “Divestment Generation” mini series to learn the rest of the song! This mini series emerges from Amanda’s doctoral research with CJTO, a two-year ethnographic community-based participatory research project tentatively entitled “Actualizing Everything: Affective Activism, Effective Politics, and the Future of Climate Justice Organizing in Canada”.
