Most people think that something needs to be done about climate change – but what? Does this issue sit with individuals, the government, or society as a whole? Climate activism, by protest groups such as Extinction Rebellion, has hit the headlines in recent years. But is protest the best way to achieve change? If not, then what else can and should we be doing? And if it is, then why aren’t more of us taking to the streets?
Join a panel of expert speakers to explore the value of protest and hear first-hand experiences from the front line of civil disobedience. They’ll bring insights from psychological research, social justice campaigning, policy and activism, and share their own experiences of trying to make a difference. With plenty of time for audience questions and discussion, this promises to be a thought-provoking and vital event tackling one of (if not the) most important issues of our times.
This event is a collaboration between The University of Bristol and M Shed’s Think Global:Act Bristol exhibition. The exhibition will be open, and free to visit, from 18:00-18:30 and 20:00-20:30.
