This page contains resources, facts and articles intended to communicate environmental concerns, share knowledge, and advocate action. As Indian environmental activist and eco-feminist Vandana Shiva has pointed out, ‘There can be no ecological security without climate justice. Equity is a precondition for sustainability. We will live together or die together.’

The articles here appeared in the 2/2009 issue of WACC’s international quarterly journal Media Development on ‘Environmental Communication’.
