— How important is the overall community of people acting in this field?
“I would never underestimate the power of the people. Social changes rarely start from above. In her recently published book Rise & Resist, author and journalist Clare Press gives a wonderful overview of a new wave of global activism, and very lively and growing movements for environmental and social justice worldwide. In recent months, we’ve witnessed the rise of Fridays for the Future and Extinction Rebellion, declaring a much needed climate emergency and demanding fast and systemic change. I think only through collaboration and joint forces, we can carry forward new solutions and build a fair and carbon-free future.”
