Best for Most Club is a programme of workshops, talks and actions, which questions what it means to be living in the age of catastrophic climate change, a period which Amitav Ghosh predicts will be viewed as an era of derangement for our failure to grasp the irreversible scale and violence of it.
Current trajectories of between 2 and 5 degrees increase will produce an unrecognisable world from the one we have today, and it’s easy to shrink into impotence faced at the sheer magnitude of this. Best for Most Club will attempt to untangle the dense global systems which continue to feed the capitalist drive to extract resources and burn fossil fuels, and propose tangible collective actions.
Our starting point is where we are – a vulnerable coastal village in remote Scottish Highlands, which is a relatively shielded global northern territory. We will work with grass-roots activists, individuals and organisations from a multiple of disciplines invested in protecting and restoring the environment, to examine the local threat of climate change and its global relationship to postcolonial politics, food and energy sovereignty, the financialisation of the ecosystem and alternative agricultural systems.
