Minds of the Movement

An ICNC blog on the people and power of civil resistance

Robin Boardman

Robin Boardman helped lead a student campaign which got Bristol University to fully divest from fossil fuels. After this win, he felt the codes of social change within my grasp, he decided to suspend his languages studies and focus on activism. Since then he has gone on a 2-week hunger strike against the Heathrow Airport Expansion (VoteNoHeathrow), coordinated Extinction Rebellion and been a spokesperson on various outlets such as the BBC, LBC and, famously, Sky News. Since May 2020, he has been disabled by Post Covid Syndrome and now focus on activist writing at robinboardman.com.
