Given the manifold intersectional forms of oppression, subjugation, and indifference experienced by animals and human people affected by climate change, how can we develop a multispecies approach to climate justice and to animal and human health? What – if any – arguments are there to include animals’ voices in the regulation of climate policy? How does the global Black Lives Matter movement intersect with and shape the future of animal liberation movements? How does this relate to other questions of global justice, and the oppression of human groups (e.g. just transitions for farmers and other workers)? How is this interconnected with capitalism? How do questions of equality play into this?
