The Climate Emergency in which we are living right now calls for intentional, radical change of our economy, politics and culture on a global level. There is an ongoing debate – in academia, politics and in activist contexts – about the role for “the individual” in instigating systemic change (see also our blog article on the topic).
The question of system and/or behaviour change (and how they are related to each other) is important for the diverse groups active in the movement against the growth of aviation, since it informs our strategies and our different approaches.
In our webinar we want to discuss these different approaches and their implications for our campaign work. There will be inputs by experts of different social theories and an outline of the “Let’s Stay Grounded!” campaign strategy. We are also looking forward to you sharing your campaign strategies and “theories of change” with us!
The goal of this webinar is to create a lively and respectful discussion of different approaches – acknowledging that there are different ways to contribute to social change.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday, October 29th 2019, from 16:00-18:00 CET.
Our guests are:
- Vivian Frick, environmental psychologist from the “Initiative Psychology of Environmental Protection” and Wandelwerk
- Lars Kjerulf Petersen, sociologist from the Aarhus University (Department of Environmental Science)
