This issue of Just Voices is dedicated to Environmental issues. In 2015 AJDS released our environment policy. It states: “The Australian Jewish Democratic Society places itself amongst progressive voices globally, striving for peace and social justice for all of humanity. Today, the progressive vision has inevitably become entwined with environmentalism. A holistic progressive vision recognises that social goals cannot be achieved in a world threatened by climate catastrophe and environmental destruction.”
The policy contains our guiding principles and actions we are committed to. You can read it here.
In this zine we have published a short collection of articles addressing climate change and environmental issues, highlighting ways we can engage with these issues, Jewish environmental values and environmentalism, and drawing attention to the intersection of the environment and environment movements with Aboriginal sovereignty and other social justice issues.
