Book Seminar: “Climate Actions: Transformative Mechanisms for Social Mobilisation”

  • Starts: 12:00 pm on Thursday, January 31, 2019
  • Ends: 1:30 pm on Thursday, January 31, 2019
Laurence Delina, a post-doctoral associate at the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, will discuss his recent book, Climate Actions: Transformative Mechanisms for Social Mobilisation, at a seminar on Thursday, January 31 from 12:00 to 1:30 pm at the Pardee Center, 67 Bay State Road (Lunch will be available beginning at 11:30 am). 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.
