The political march is back in a big way, as communities rally to build movements for environmental and social justice. Crossing the globe, CLARE PRESS met the passionate change-makers using increasingly creative strategies to make their voices heard. From eco warriors and zero wasters to knitting nannas and introvert craftivists they are all united by a grand purpose: to rethink how we live today to build a more sustainable tomorrow.
