Global Justice Ecology Project (GJEP) explores and exposes the intertwined root causes of social injustice, ecological destruction, and economic domination.
GJEP envisions a world in which all societies are justly and equitably governed with full participation by an engaged and informed populace living in harmony with the natural world and one another.
We accomplish our mission by (1) prioritizing campaigns that are key leverage points for advancing systemic change, and (2) linking struggles and strengthening diverse movements with strategic action, information, and analysis.
The mission of the Campaign to STOP Genetically Engineered Trees is to protect forests and biodiversity and to provide support to communities threatened by the dangerous environmental release of genetically engineered trees.
The Campaign is a global alliance of national, international, regional, and local organizations, the goal of which is a global ban on the release of genetically engineered trees into the environment. The Campaign is coordinated by Global Justice Ecology Project and operates out of the GJEP office in Buffalo, NY.
Biofuelwatch works to raise awareness of the negative impacts of industrial biofuels and bioenergy on biodiversity, human rights, food sovereignty and climate change. Based in UK and US, we work with national and international partners to expose and oppose the social and environmental damages resulting from bioenergy-driven increased demand for industrial agriculture and forestry monocultures.
