Tom Athanasiou is the executive director of EcoEquity. He coordinated the international Climate Action Network’s Equity Working Group in the critical years between the 2009 Copenhagen and the 2015 Paris climate summits. He was a key organizer of the Civil Society Equity Review effort before the Paris meeting, and co-directs the Climate Equity Reference Project, an activist think tank that aims to shape global climate equity into a driver of extremely ambitious mobilization. He is active in international policy development within the U.S. Climate Action Network and has been writing about climate for decades. The working title of his new book, if he ever finds a publisher, will be The New World: Justice in the Time of Climate Emergency.
