Julia Steinberger: Struggle for survival: The importance of climate activism from the perspectives of political economy and science communication

What:
Talk
When:
9:00 AM, Friday 4 Jun 2021 EDT (1 hour 15 minutes)
How:
Climate activism is crucial for any sustained progress on climate action. I will discuss this from two systemic perspectives in social science: political economy and science communication. I will explore what the terms "fossil capitalism" and "captured state" mean in reality and for activism, in particular through the lens of the political economy of dependence on cars. I will build on this systemic understanding to draw lessons for the role, potential and necessity of social organizing and activism.
