Sounding the alarm: talking about existential threat … and rebellion
Friday 26 June 5pm – 6pm AEST. Zoom presentations and discussion
Fear does work! This event will cover the research that backs strong climate emergency messaging and Roger Hallam’s approach to Extinction Rebellion talks and media events.
Jane Morton, clinical psychologist and author of Don’t mention the emergency? will summarise the research that backs the power of emotionally congruent messages that include a personally relevant threat plus proportionate action.
Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, and author of Common Sense for the 21st Century: Only non-violent rebellion can stop climate breakdown and social collapse, will explore XR’s use of simple and clear, but intensely emotional communication.
