The new radicalism in environmental engagement

Publication date:
August 2019
Environmental engagement is on television screens, in the streets and at your local book group; everyone's doing it. Whether you're engrossed in the latest nature documentary or watching the news in the evening, environmental communicators are everywhere and everyone. In this edition of the environmental SCIENTIST we're on the front lines of the revolution, mixing with artists, comedians, unions and students; exploring the new face of environmental engagement. Read about how local cultural expertise once cast aside is at the forefront of research, why paper bags are environmentally misleading and hear from a professor arrested at the extinction rebellion protests.
