“The Arts of Campaigning: Building A Just And Sustainable Future” by Noga Levy-Rapoport
Monday 11 September, 20:00 - 22:00
Fighting the climate crisis is about mobilising as many people as possible to stand up for their future. This requires broad and inclusive social movements. For long young people have been excluded from these movements. In many places the education systems do not convey the necessity to take action when it comes to the climate crisis. This is why the climate movement demands political and creative education accessible to everybody. Such education is not only essential for protesting for a better future but also for understanding the importance of defending the right to do so.
Noga Levy-Rapoport is a 21-year-old student, climate justice activist, volunteer, and organiser with the UK Student Climate Network. They have organised climate protests across the UK and became one of the main figures when it comes to environmental demands. They expressed the need for urgent climate action on multiple occasions including the Maritime International Organization and the British Parliament.
In this lecture, Noga will talk about the necessary movements addressing the climate crisis and the role of education in creating them. They will address the lessons learned from domestic and global campaigns for communication and recruitment to the cause. We will learn how in a seemingly hopeless state of global affairs young people can fight for a better future.
