The inspiration was our brief conversation on convergence of climate justice, labour rights and digital rights for universal justice :slight_smile: so thank you!

Thanks for sharing the article with us, Saksham. As you note, digital rights and environmental rights do intersect, and not often in a good way.

But allow me to ask you a direct question, how can a digital rights organisation group like IFF advance environmental rights within its mandate? I think climate change is no longer a secondary consideration, it must now be centred in every decision making process. So how can IFF centre climate change in its mandate? Your thoughts will be welcome
