Do you dream of doing more than signing online petitions but don’t want to camp out on a pavement to prove a point?
Are you frustrated because you’re not making a difference but don’t want to turn your life upside down in the name of action?
Well this Webinar addresses some of these questions and is presented by Ruth Stokes who wrote the book “The Armchair Activist's Handbook,” where she looks at ideas for activism away from traditional chants-and-banners protest, following Ruth's mission to find other ways that people can take action for change. It looks at the middle ground between slacktivism and full-on protest, and seeks out approaches that are easy, accessible and fun, and will fit around a busy life.
It covers lots of different areas. These include taking action on our faulty food system, taking a stand against the problems with fast fashion, reclaiming and reinventing public spaces, grabbing back some control over the economy, addressing problems with how natural resources are controlled, unusual ways to get attention for your cause, reducing the impact our travel has on people and planet, and how we might use the internet to support all of this.
During the process of writing the book, Ruth met lots of activists and tried some things out herself.
In this webinar, Ruth will share some insight and ideas from her experience, and answer questions on how various approaches might be able to to make a difference.
