Tânia R. Santos presents at Conference “Overcoming Obstacles to Climate Change Mitigation: a cross-cutting approach by human and social sciences”

Tânia R. Santos presented a communication titled: “Young climate activists and the discursive limits of climate politics: analysing the diversity of voices of the movement and their media portrayal” during the international and interdisciplinary scientific conference on “Overcoming Obstacles to Climate Change Mitigation:a cross-cutting approach by human and social sciences”. This conference took place in UCLouvain in a hybrid format on 23-24 May 2024. Tânia R. Santos presented online on the topic of how different political imaginaries of youth climate collectives in Portugal are differently presented on television. On mainstream media outlets, a clear distinction (and preference) is given to dutiful dissent without fully discussing the political imaginaries proposed by disruptive dissent, such as  school and university occupations. This work was jointly elaborated with Daniela Ferreira da Silva and Anabela Carvalho.
