While government action on global warming stalls, individuals and small groups are coalescing into a movement taking a last stand against climate catastrophe. Hear from leading activists Jean Hinchliffe and Scott Ludlam as they discuss the path forward with Linh Do. Ludlam's Full Circle draws from his experience as a Greens senator to explore how ordinary people can stand up to corporations and corrupt leaders. Hinchliffe's Lead the Way is a young person's guide to activism inspired by her success as an organiser of School Strikes 4 Climate.
