The urgency of the climate crisis is reflected in the Wikimedia 2030 Movement Strategy recommendations, which call on the entire Wikimedia Movement to “align our practices to support the environmental sustainability of our planet”. A group of Wikimedia afiliates have recently begun implementing this recommendation, commiting themselves to reducing their carbon footprint through a variety of measures, especially around travel, in the [https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Affiliates_Environmental_Sustainability_Covenant Wikimedia Affiliates Environmental Sustainability Covenant]. This session will explore this new initiative, especially how it takes into account the principle of climate justice, meaning that the more privileged must help carry the burden otherwise disproportionately borne by those less privileged and those living in regions prone to the harshest effects of climate change. The session will close with a call on North American Wikimedia affiliates to co-sign the Wikimedia Affiliates Environmental Sustainability Covenant.
