Global Justice Ecology Project needs help designing a graphic for our podcast that is in the works.
We are a small non-profit looking to produce a podcast based on our history and our work on environmental justice issues. With being so small it's hard to designate time and money to graphic design.
Global Justice Ecology Project explores and exposes the intertwined root causes of social injustice, ecological destruction, and economic domination. We focus on stopping dangerous and destructive genetically engineered trees, protecting forests and supporting the rights and struggles of indigenous peoples.
Our Campaign to STOP Genetically Engineered Trees was founded to protect forests, biodiversity and rural communities from the potentially catastrophic impacts of GE trees. We work nationally and internationally, building alliances with organizations as well as Indigenous and forest dependent communities and have prevented the large-scale deployment of GE trees using community organizing, media, direct action and legal strategies.
Our goal is to permanently stop the development of large-scale industrial plantations of GE trees anywhere in the world. Right now, we are facing an imminent threat from genetically engineered eucalyptus trees, which the USDA is considering legalizing for commercial sale in the US. GE eucalytpus trees are highly invasive, extremely flammable and consume twice the water of native forests. They provide no habitat for wildlife leading some to call them "green deserts."
In addition to our work on GE trees, we use media as a strategic tool to educate the public on the dangers of climate change, fossil fuels and false solutions to climate change such as nuclear power. Since 2004 we have traveled to UN conferences on climate change, biodiversity and Indigenous Peoples' rights in order to connect journalists and reporters directly with those who are fighting climate injustice. We believe their stories are some of the most powerful tools we have to help educate and mobilize people to take action to challenge unjust climate policies.
