Intro talk: Climate Crisis and Civil Resistance - Canterbury University
Nau Mai, Haere Mai
We all know it's no time for empty promises: with no carbon budget left and ecological systems in free fall: we have to act decisively!Social science says we must rebel. COP26 shows international meetings cannot stop climate collapse. History shows that Civil Resistance movements, country by country, can stop climate collapse. Together, we can.
Come and hear about our peaceful civil resistance campaign, and why some have chosen to step up into high stakes action. Come and hear climate and civil resistance experts and local people tell the truth about the climate crisis, and what we can do about it. This session will discuss many things including how resisting injustice and standing up for what is right is a visceral, beautiful experience and part of what it means to be human at this time.
Lets make history! This event is open to everyone, newcomers or those experienced in climate action.
