From the 25th to 28th of May, Joost de Moor organized an European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) Joint Sessions workshop (online), alongside Katrin Uba (Uppsala University), on the 'new' climate activism.
During the workshop “The ‘New’ Climate Activism: Contemporary Trajectories and Political Consequences”, distinguished and emerging scholars convened for a week of intense discussions on the question what sets apart recent waves of climate activism (e.g. under the banners of Fridays For Future and Extinction Rebellion), and what this may tell us about climate politics more generally.
The workshop was inspired by Joost and Katrin’s recent publications including the ones below.
