Laurence Delina, a post-doctoral associate at the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, recently discussed his newest book, Climate Actions: Transformative Mechanisms for Social Mobilisation, at a Pardee Center seminar on January 31, 2019.
The book, published by Palgrave Macmillan, gives an overview of global climate change action and explores ways to mobilize groups and individuals to become more successful activists. By synthesizing insights from a series of international surveys, Delina introduces a novel set of mechanisms to strengthen the climate action movement’s campaigns, tactics, and strategies. His recommended mechanisms are designed around five major themes: enhancing relationships, developing value-based messaging, presenting alternatives, establishing networks, and increasing public communication.
