AZIZ, Garth. Environmental justice as an act of love: A reflection on the agency of the youth on the Cape Flats. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2021, vol.77, n.2, pp.1-6. ISSN 2072-8050.

There has been visible evidence of youth activism regarding environmental consciousness on the global scene with some prominent voices amongst them. An increase in research on eco-theology has also been seen. Yet, it is easy to become fixated on environmentalism with regards to ozone depletion and greenhouse effects, and miss the various nuances of the movement. One such area relates to consumption and environmental justice, and that means not only for the global movement of environmentalism but more specifically in the local South African context.CONTRIBUTION: This article, therefore, will look at environmental justice as an act of love through the agency of the youth within the coloured community on the Cape Flats

Keywords : youth; faith; consumption; environmental justice; youth ministry; Cape Flats; social justice.
