Abstract

This paper will look at how social movements, such as the Occupy collectives and 'Get Up!' firmly believe in sustainability, renewable energy and a reduction in consumption for the betterment of the planet. Many activists believe that climate change, depletion of natural resources, including fossil fuels, is a consequence of unsustainable industrialisation, and should change. The paper will explore why sustainability and resilience is at the forefront of social movement principles.
