Clare Saunders: Climate change activism in the UK: Continuity and change over the last 20 years

Quoi:
Talk
Quand:
11:40 AM, vendredi 4 juin 2021 EDT (1 heure 15 minutes)
Comment:
Climate activism has been hitting the streets since the early 2000s, but has come in notable peaks and troughs. What is it that causes those peaks and troughs? And where might we expect climate activism to go next after the latest wave of civil disobedience? What allowed these new waves of climate activism (Extinction Rebellion and Fridays for Future) to emerge and flourish? The talk will focus mostly on the British case, exploring frictions and factions and undercover policing as demotivating factors; and leadership, urgency and scientific certainty as motivating factors.
