RFF – WILD THINGS: A YEAR ON THE FRONTLINE OF ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISM
Wild Things spends a year on the frontline with environmental activists hell-bent on saving their futures from the ravages of climate change.
Armed only with mobile phones, this growing army of eco-warriors is mobilising against forces more powerful than themselves and saying, enough. From chaining themselves to coal trains, sitting high in the canopy of threatened rainforest or locking onto bulldozers, their non-violent tactics are designed to generate mass action with one finger tap.
Against a backdrop of drought, fire and floods; we witness how today’s environmentalists are making a difference. Surprisingly the methods of old still have currency when a groundswell of school kids inspired by the actions of 16-year old Swedish student Greta Thunberg say, ‘change is coming’ and call a national strike demanding action against global warming.
