Home   /   ‘Alexa, How Can We Save The Planet?’- The Impact of Digital Life on the Fight Against the Climate Crisis.

There is no disputing that the discussion of the climate crisis is becoming increasingly present in our day to day lives. With the situation escalating, it is easy to feel powerless and insignificant, and that any changes made ourselves will not be enough. However, there are many ways to get involved in the climate crisis. And it is as easy as clicking a button.

The Extinction Rebellion are one of many groups keen to encourage the conversation surrounding climate change.

Let us call them the Eco Warriors; Instagram accounts dedicated to providing useful and reliable information on the climate crisis. These people use social media as a platform to educate their followers on issues such as sustainability and climate justice. Through small squares on a small screen, you can learn how to be more eco-friendly, and feel involved in the fight against climate change.

Popular culture and entertainment more generally are becoming more climate conscious. David Attenborough breaking the Instagram record for the fastest person to reach 1 million followers suggests that young people and social media users do care about the climate crisis. Hopefully the readily available information, and advice on social media, means the climate crisis can be made everyone’s problem, and therefore, we can all help with the solutions.
