Event description

Description

Join academics and activists, as we host a spirited panel discussion of competing visions for our environmental future. Meet the voices behind the debate and discuss with us as we imagine alternative ideas for our ecological future. This event is part of the Festival of Social Science 2019.

A new wave of social movements have begun to mobilise around the topics of climate change, biodiversity and ecological issues, the most famous of which is Extinction Rebellion. However, this is not the only social movement, and their vision and tactics have been hotly contested. So, what are the alternatives? How can social movements create democratic changes from the grassroots?

Meet utopian and ecological scholars, along with activists at the front lines of eco-defense, to address these queries through panel presentations, discussion and a participatory mapping session.

Dr Rhiannon Firth from the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex will host this panel discussion at Resource for London. This venue is fully wheelchair accessible.

Members of the public, academics and participants in social movements are welcome to attend. Anyone interested in exploring alternative visions for our ecological future will find this event thought provoking and informative.

*Please note* admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. As not everyone who registers for a ticket will attend the event, we release more tickets than there are places to ensure we have a full house. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early. Thank-you for your understanding!
