As outcomes of the dominant economic model, climate change, the destruction of nature, injustice and inequality are interlinked: if the crisis is systemic, we need systemic solutions. But how do we achieve social and ecological transformations of our economy? By which actions is social change made? And what role does civil disobedience need to play? We will look at struggles against airport expansions, gas pipelines, privatization of water, and land grabbing to learn how to act and mobilize effectively and to bridge single-issue campaigns into a powerful force of alter-globalization.
