Environmental activism in Brazil: the rise of a social movement

Abstract

This chapter discusses why the Brazilian environmental movement appeared when and as it did, how the activists gathered in groups and networks, and which frames and strategies they built in order to mobilize. It is argued that the movement is a network of different activist groups that became mobilized, originally, for different purposes in specific settings, following their own focal mobilizing routines.
