Summary:“The climate movement is now old and robust enough to be studied--which in and of itself is good news. And the results of those inquiries are of great use in … building this movement big enough and fast enough to catch up with the physics of global warming. This book will help make our labors more effective!” -Bill McKibben, founder, 350.org, and Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies, Middlebury College, USA “Addressing climate change will not be achieved through business as usual. … To learn how citizen action might be improved, Laurence Delina brings to bear insights from social theory combined with reports from numerous action groups. … Climate Actions offers a wealth of ideas and information for anyone seeking to make actions as effective as possible.” -Brian Martin, Emeritus Professor, University of Wollongong, Australia 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
