Environmentalism of Everyday Life

We are seeing a shift in the nature and form of environmental activism. A whole range of environmental groups have emerged with a focus not on environmental policy at the state or national level, but instead on the development of new and more sustainable practices relating to food, energy, transport, and a range of other basic needs. Environmentalists are no longer just greenies in the forest or parliament. ‘The Environmentalism of Everyday Life’ project examines a variety of these new movements and activists across the US, UK and Australia, from those working in community-supported agriculture and alternative energy to sustainable fashion advocates and the founders of repair cafes.
