Activist Session: The use of civil disobedience in a growth-stuck world
The current environmental and social crisis demands new responses from activists. Demonstrations, townhall meetings and popular education do not have the desired impact in complex issues such as climate change, austerity, corporate power and the loss of biodiversity: Business-as-usual scenarios are becoming a threat to survival of our societies while at the same time the status quo of our current economic system is maintained in the corporate boardrooms as well as shortsighted politics.
Civil disobedience is thus becoming a necessity. Actions such as Ende Gelände are gaining popularity. How can this tactic be used effectively? Can the movement sustain itself? Can we learn from history?
