Welcome Talk: Climate Crisis and Civil Resistance — Lincoln University
Nau mai haere mai!
We know this is no time for empty promises: with no carbon budget left and ecological systems in freefall, we have to act decisively. Social science says we must rebel. COP27 shows government agreements cannot stop climate collapse, but history shows that civil resistance movements can, country by country. Together, we can.
Come and hear about the campaign to Restore Passenger Rail and why some have chosen to step up into high-stakes action. Come and hear climate activists 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.
Let's make history!
