dc.description.abstractAs climate change continues to grow and impact our world, so does the response from activists across the world. Climate justice activists take many forms and employ many strategies to effect change in policy of or public opinion on greenhouse gas emissions. Through York University's Academic Innovation Fund dedicated to creating open source, publicly available course content, we've created 6 video segments interviewing grassroots climate justice activists from Toronto, a city with many climate justice organizations and efforts. Here we interview digital educators Lindura Sappong and Toni Sappong, two sisters who run the environmental justice Instagram blog @PlasticFreeTO. We'll discuss what it's like to be a digital activist, the efficacy of social media as a tool for social change, and the pitfalls of living virtually. You can watch the live-recorded video interviews or read the transcripts recorded in Summer 2020.en_US
