'As issues of equity and justice move centre stage worldwide, how do we develop a responsive, unified, intersectional environmentalism? This challenge is not new, but Bell has assembled an excellent collection that utilizes academic, personal and experiential perspectives to give us fresh, creative new ideas.' Julian Agyeman, Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, Tufts University
'A well-timed, much needed holistic approach to the ways in which social inequalities such as class and disability are manifested in mainstream environmentalism. Everyone involved in environmental campaigning should read this book!' Lucie Marks, Key Relationships Officer, Greenpeace UK
Come along to meet the editor and participate in discussion with others interested in this topic.
The event takes place on Thursday 21 September from 6-7.30pm in room 237B (ground floor) of the ARC, The Mazumdar-Shaw Advanced Research Centre, 11 Chapel Lane, University of Glasgow, G11 6EW. Refreshments and snacks will be available.
