Producing and Consuming ‘Green Transitions': Social Movement Challenges and Strategies
Specifically, social movements (including, prominently, labor) have an abiding concern with promoting greater degrees of popular oversight, participation, ownership, and control of renewable and sustainable systems of resource production, distribution, and consumption. Each of these factors bears directly or indirectly on questions of scale and decentralization, particularly of energy production and distribution. Taking examples from the EU, US, and South Africa, this paper illustrates how questions of oversight, participation, etc. have been framed by movement actors, the difficulties they encounter in framing issues in overly narrow and economistic terms, and concludes with some suggestions for overcoming these difficulties.
