Grassroots Innovations for Sustainability
Part of the Climate Change, Inequality and Social Policy seminar series 2017/18
Gill Seyfang, Reader in Sustainable Consumption, University of East Anglia
This seminar examines how community-led innovations for radical sustainable development can reach the parts of society other sustainability policies fail to reach. The presenter will show how a deeper sustainability vision is live and kicking across the country, inspiring local action and resistance. The presentation will include research findings on community energy initiatives, and discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by small-scale grassroots green initiatives, in seeking to build a more sustainable society.
