Curated Resources - Rainbows and Storms: LGBTQI+, climate crisis and pandemics
The Curated Conversation "Rainbows and Storms: LGBTQI+, climate crisis and pandemics" centers queer voices. Held with DIVA for Equality Fiji, we will learn how to set up community owned aquaponic gardens, collective cleaning of rivers, or organize queer women builders networks.
We propose here a series of resources for you to explore and dive into the theme.
