No Warming, No War: How militarism fuels the climate crisis and vice versa

Institute for Policy Studies

| Recording/Webinar | All Ages

This interactive workshop is climate and militarism 101. This session will explore the relationship between climate change and militarism. Militarism directly contributes to climate change, and it represents one of the more alarming responses to climate threats and climate-related migration. But the U.S. war economy also presents an opportunity to redirect significant military resources, including money, infrastructure, and people, toward implementing solutions to climate change. Rooted in the strategy framework for a just transition, this interactive workshop will illustrate the role of militarism in the extractive economy and guide participants towards an articulation of climate justice that includes demilitarization.
