Mission 21

Summer School: Protesting for Change – does it matter?

International Online Summer School by Mission 21

What makes protests a global phenomenon? How effective are they in changing our world? And how do activists manage to persevere in their struggle for structural changes? Participants will discuss these and other questions with international experts and activists around the world.

The last few years have been marked by social movements and protests. People around the world have reclaimed the streets for their demands: a new, dynamic and young movement against climate change emerged as well as democratic movements in Hong Kong or Chile. Currently, people around the world are deeply moved by the death of George Floyd in the US which led them to protest against racism and for justice. Mission 21’s many partners worldwide have been in contact with these different social movements.
