It can seem obvious to us who’s behind protests, frontline actions, and civil disobedience. It’s activists. And whether you love, hate, respect or revile them, it’s quite easy to think of activists as some different breed of person. These disruptors are here to show that activists can come from all walks of life, work in any profession and are ultimately just like you and me.

Come and meet some of the everyday heroes finding themselves in unusual situations – putting friendships, careers, or even their freedom on the line in pursuit of a better world, and a safe climate.

Facilitated by Mark Spencer from Climactic, this panel will give insights into what inspires and sustains these surprisingly relatable activists, uncovering the stories that led them to speak up, stand up and disrupt. But be warned, if these panelists can become activists, you might just become one yourself.
