We look at how the dominant consumer story infects many change making strategies, and some of the ways in which groups have sought to challenge consumer logic with citizen practice ..read more

While the world is striving to stop catastrophic climate change, there is plenty of conflict over how climate campaign goals are chosen and the language that is used to express them.

Ruchira Talukdar, a climate activist in India and Australia has lived and studied these tensions.
