Applying Pressure – Can An Individual Change the World?

Environment
Tamsin Osmond
Climate Campaigner

Drawing from her experience with high profile ‘Plane Stupid' and her role as a radical lobbyist and non-violent direct activist, Tamsin considers what transforms illegal action into legitimate world-changing events.

Using both historical precedent and the current environmental struggle, she suggests that at times of crisis, when governments will not act in the interest of the people, individuals must involve and empower one another to demand and live according to what is socially good. Non-violent direct action is this community's application of pressure - not to asking for a better tomorrow but creating the reality of a better today.
