Climate Actions: Transformative Mechanisms for Social Mobilisation

Delina, Laurence L. 2019. Climate Actions: Transformative Mechanisms for Social Mobilisation. Palgrave Pivot

Abstract

Climate change remains a challenge that needs to be addressed at its core, particularly the rapid reduction of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. This book discusses strategies for climate actions by synthesizing insights from a set of international ‘contemporary social action group’s’ surveys. Based on these Delina introduces a synthesis of mechanisms for generating change, designed around 5 main themes: relationships (relating); value-based messages (messaging); alternatives (visioning); diversity (webbing); and communication (interacting). This book will be of great value to all academics and practitioners interested in the future development of our climate.
