Earth System Governance Speakers Series

On May 20th, Joost de Moor took part in a panel that examined what is (not) unique about the recent waves of climate mobilization, as well as the question of engagement with or opposition to formal global sustainability governance institutions.

Joost' talk was part of the (online) Earth System Governance Speakers Series on “Alternative actions? Climate Activism and Earth System Governance”, organized by Amandine Orsini (Université Saint-Louis-Bruxelles), and alongside Jennifer Allan (Cardiff University). Based on articles including the ones listed below, Joost discussed what is (or isn’t) new about recent waves of climate activism under the banners of Fridays For Future and Extinction Rebellion, arguing that a ‘return to the state’ appears most distinctive. The latter poses a challenge to our understanding of the state in the Anthropocene.
