After completing a degree in Geography at the University of Edinburgh, Alice Owen studied a Masters Human Ecology in Lund, Sweden, which also included an internship as a researcher for the Environmental Justice Atlas in Barcelona focusing on ‘Blockadia’ grassroots climate justice social movements.
Activism makes its way into Alice’s research as well as her spare time, and her Master’s thesis examined how environmental resistances in Europe are also places where Degrowth ideas are a lived reality.
