CCLS Frontline Programme


The Cambridge Climate Frontline Programme started in order to fill the gap between the scientific knowledge found in Cambridge and frontline communities knowledge about climate change and its impacts. We want to amplify the voices of those struggling far from Cambridge and join forces to raise awareness and fight in solidarity for a truly just and sustainable world.

The objectives of the Frontline Programme are:

1. Recognise the justice dimension in climate change. Communicate the importance of regarding climate change as one more symptom of a world order that causes many other related social injustices. Stress the fact that on one hand a few minority of privileged individuals and companies in western societies have been responsible for most of the global warming to day. On the other hand, the consequences of climate change have to be mainly suffered by a majority of impoverished and already marginalised communities, usually in the Global South.
