In March, The Dominion will turning up the heat with our next special issue, focussing on climate justice, and we’re on the prowl for content.

We’re looking for stories – articles, infographics, photo essays – that explore the challenges folks are facing in the fight against climate change, and the meaningful solutions people are creating. We’re looking to publish a strong mix of stories with first hand accounts of impacts from front line communities, and to concretely imagine what “system change, not climate change,” a slogan made popular at the COP-15 in Denmark, might mean.

We are looking for stories with a Canadian angle, but strong international pieces will also be considered. Priority is given to pieces exploring under-reported struggles, or using new angles to understand a longstanding issue.
