At ONCA, we facilitate spaces for anti-colonial and anti-racist environmental education and solidarity.
Environmental justice & Activism
Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, colour, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.
At ONCA, we aim to create and support inclusive and accessible educational projects and events that promote environmental justice and activism. As part of ONCA’s Declaration of Emergency, we’ve pledged to:
- Use ONCA’s privileges, platforms, spaces and other resources to amplify the voices of people experiencing climate and environmental injustice and highlight intergenerational harm.
- Support practical acts of solidarity that are informed by people directly affected by the systems and structures driving the ecological emergency, and promote initiatives led by these communities.
- Ensure that our practices and projects are underpinned by reflective dialogue as we push for rapid action for climate justice.

Unbearable Whiteness of Green Workshop
We run an environmental justice workshop for activists that explores racism within environmental activism and the climate emergency. This Unbearable Whiteness of Green workshop aims facilitate a space to help activists:
- Understand and discuss the concept of whiteness and how it manifests in environmental activism.
- Understand and discuss the concepts of environmental racism & racist environmentalism, and how they affect communities of colour.
- Explore the concept of environmental justice, and how to develop better processes in terms of how we think, speak about and do environmentalism.
We aim to document our environmental justice themed events for educational purposes. As well as videos and podcasts, we’ve also created blogs for further reading.
