Can social movements create more ecologically resilient futures? Imagine new possibilities with us...

Ecotopias: Imagining ecological communities

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.

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 is the alternative? How can a social movement create democratic changes from the grassroots?

This panel discussion will hosted by Dr Rhiannon Firth from the Department of Sociology. The event will run from 10.30am - 3.30pm on Saturday 9 November at Resource for London, Holloway Road in London.

This event is part of the nationwide Festival Of Social Science, it is open to the public and completely free of charge.
