FingoTalks: The role of civic activism in climate action

    Discussion Environment State of civil society
Saturday 25.5.2019 14:30 – 15:10 Taiga Stage, Finnish National Theatre Club Scene

What can small civil society organisations and protest movements do to mitigate climate change? What are the strategic opportunities for advocacy and how should activities be prioritised? How to motivate yourself and others when progress is slow or non-existent? 

The discussion is joined by international guest Nike Mahlhaus, who works as the publicist of Ende Gelände, a German movement that uses civil disobedience to oppose coal power. Other participants include Varpu Sairinen from Korvaamaton climate campaign and climate activist Marcus Petz from Extinction Rebellion Finland. The discussion is hosted by civil society expert Pauliina Savola of Fingo. 

The discussion is held in English.
