A Night In with Mikaela Loach
Join influential climate activist Mikaela Loach in conversation with Gemma Styles to celebrate the publication of her new book It’s Not That Radical: Climate Action to Transform Our World.
For too long, representations of climate action in the mainstream media have been white-washed, green-washed and diluted to be made compatible with capitalism. Tackling the climate crisis requires each of us to go to the roots of poverty, capitalist exploitation, police brutality and legal injustice. Climate justice offers the real possibility of huge leaps towards racial equality and collective liberation as it aims to dismantle the very foundations of these issues.
Written with candour and hope, It’s Not That Radical will empower readers to take action, offering an accessible and transformative appraisal of our circumstances to help mobilise a majority for the future of our planet. Drawing on Mikaela’s years of experience in the climate movement, and the wisdom of many brilliant activists, Loach hopes her book will not only reframe how we tackle the climate crisis, but will also show readers what can be done at a practical level, including tips and tools that can be implemented in their own lives.
This incredibly special virtual event will help outline the tools we can all utilise to take action in the fight for a better future. Mikaela and Gemma will present a fresh and radical perspective for real climate action; action that could drastically change the world as we know it for the benefit of us all. Be sure to tune in.
Practical and urgent – this is a clarion call for transformation from the front lines of the fight for people and planet. I have no doubt It’s Not That Radical will become an indispensable toolkit for a new generation of activists. Naomi Klein
