Quiet Activism: Socially Innovative Climate Action

Wendy Steele, Jean Hillier, Diana MacCallum, Donna Houston, Jason Byrne

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book focuses on the potential and possibilities for socially innovative responses to the climate emergency at the local scale. Climate change has intensified the need for communities to find creative and meaningful ways to address the sustainability of their environments. The aim of the book is twofold: to highlight the transformative power of socially innovative activities and initiatives in response to the climate crisis; and to critically explore how different individuals and groups undertake climate action as ‘quiet activism’ – the embodied acts of collective disruption, subversion, creativity and care at the local scale.
