Mapping the Green Political Revolution

Thu 16 February 2017 19:00-20:30

Dining Room, Teviot Row House

Free event, just turn up!


This discussion/workshop explores the links between environmental and social justice, and how this can be applied to socialism and environmentalism in Edinburgh. It includes a talk from Scottish Green Party politicians.


Although the environmental movement relies on individual action, it also requires wider political action. Helping students, and members of the larger university/city community, to join the dots between social and environmental justice will inspire them to demand more from decision makers and to recognize how these ideas play out in government policy. It will also enable them to consider how their activism they may already do in socialism or environmentalism can be enhanced by considering the link between the two.


The workshop element will further give people the opportunity to talk with each other and form ideas about how to be more pro-active in bringing environmentally friendly policies to the city and university.


Sustain.ED is Edinburgh’s first citywide green festival brought to you by the Students’ Association Sabbatical Officer team, in partnership with the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh City Council.
