Tina Rothery - ChangeMaker Chat - Nanas against Fracking ChangeMakers

    • News

The UK’s Nana’s against Fracking are a grassroots movement that spread across regional UK communities to stop gas fracking. The movement was led by a legion of women who had never, or only at a distance, been involved in making change, but felt compelled to act when they found out about the catastrophic effects of fracking on the environment and community Tina and the Nanas were a magnificent example of people seeking and achieving ordinary hope - showing the kind of community power that lies in all of us.
This episode is a ChangeMakers #UKSpecial.
Nanas against Fracking take some inspiration from their sisters the Knitting Nanna’s in Australia! ChangeMakers produced an episode on gas extraction in the Northern Rivers that features these Nanas back in our first season, and you can find it on ACAST or on our website.
You can find the UK Nanas on X/Twitter here @UK_Nanas and Tina Rothery @tinalouiseUK.
ChangeMakers 2024 is supported by the Civic Power Fund and work with the UCL Policy Lab. This year they are supporting ChangeMakers to bring together a collection of Chats filled with extraordinary ideas and everyday experience to understand how we can change the world, www.ucl.ac.uk/policy-lab/ucl-policy-lab and www.civicpower.org.uk.
