Learning from the past to shape the future
Since 2016 we have been working with a small group of long-term activists & campaigners to develop an oral history of the green movement since the 1980s. It’s been frustrating – as we have been rejected form funding applications, but momentum is now building as we see the relevance of a more sustainable world in the light of the combined emergencies of climate, biodiversity, obesity and Covid-19 – all of which could be attributed to unsustainable global business and food systems models. We now have the British Library, The Peoples History Museum and several academics involved and hope to identify a funding route in the coming months.
Here is a link to the timeline we are developing with Chris Church and Barbara Brashay launched on Earth Day 2020.
