Copenhagen to Cancún: Re-imagining Climate Action

My latest post for Th!nk4: Climate Change:

There has been lots of soul searching since Copenhagen. We have all questioned the direction that climate activism should take. This is the first of a series of posts exploring this challenge.

We’ve been re-evaluating our goals and strategies. Do we sideline the struggle for a global agreement in favour of more achievable goals? Do we focus our energies at the National, State or local level?

We’ve been looking for new or different ways of working. Do we make community education and awareness the priority? How do we reach out to a broader audience?

Should we become more involved in mainstream politics through political parties and elections?

Is direct action a better route?
