Since December 2014 we have been taking part in a discussion network instigated and co-ordinated by the Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home. The subject was climate change and family life in the lead up to COP21 in Paris. The discussion culminated in a group trip to Paris on the weekend of the end of the COP21 talks (12th/13th Dec 2015). The world’s leaders and neoliberal green capitalism cannot take the necessary action to step back from severe climate disruption, but COP21 is an opportunity to mobilize ourselves and others towards social and ecological justice. The red line was adopted by the demo organisers (Alternatibe and FoE International) as a symbol for warning and for the danger line of 1.5 oC global average warming.
