If we’re to create the positive future so many of us hope for, and one in which climate change and extinctions don’t dominate, we need everyone on board. We all need to be activists.
For some people, ‘activism’ seems to come naturally – they might enjoy the thrill of public speaking, be energised by being in big crowds and drawing attention to themselves, which a lot of direct action seems to assume as a no-brainer component. So what if you’re an introvert?
And the lovely news is that, following a successful event and discussion on craftivism in autumn, Oxfordshire’s Community Action Groups (CAG) are setting up a regular event for people who want to come together to make crafts, banners, creative pieces of work for a social cause – something which might well appeal to those introvert activists looking for ways to get involved in something important, without doing things which don’t feel natural. There will be tea, cosy vibes and conversation as always, for those who want it. Materials provided for a small donation, but please bring your own too!
