The Zero-Zero Solution: Getting to Actual Zero Anthropogenic Emissions of GHG with the VECA (Vision for Equitable Climate Action) Framework
Reframing the solutions of the climate crisis from a frontline and environmental justice perspective, the Vision For Equitable Climate Action (VECA) is a living document that provides an uncompromising framework of climate solutions to foster bold climate action in a comprehensive and equitable way.
VECA details how to do this work within the scope and scale of the global crisis, which arises from systems of colonialism, racism, and injustice. It highlights preferred technologies that are not harmful to people or the planet. This makes the VECA framework a collection of real-world solutions to achieve zero-zero anthropogenic emissions.
This panel will walk attendees through the VECA. As it was collaboratively created by hundreds of organizations, with diverse background experiences, attendees will find that the solutions offered within the VECA are uniquely able to provide pathways that are scalable to every level of society.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn how to connect with, and become an advocate for the use of this well thought out policy platform within the UNFCCC so that we can move past climate actions that only aspire to work within the least common denominators
