This October, UK organizers John Stewart and Dan Glass will cross the US, sharing the real story of one of the biggest climate battles of the past decade. British politicians and aviation lobbyists had no idea what was in store for them as they plotted to massively grow London’s Heathrow Airport, the busiest in Europe. Neighbors and climate activists fought to save homes and fight climate change, kicking off a 10-year campaign against the industry responsible for 13% of UK CO2. Learn how British direct action activists and conservative politicians teamed up to shut down Big Aviation’s plans to grow at any cost–environmental, social, economic.

JOHN STEWART was a key organizer in the successful decade-long campaign to stop the expansion of London’s Heathrow Airport. He was named Britain’s most effective green activist by the Independent on Sunday for bringing together aviation-impacted communities, climate activists, and fiscal conservatives.

DAN GLASS was named one of the UK’s youth climate leaders by the Guardian and one of Attitude magazine’s 66 new role models for helping bridge LGBTQ and environmental justice movements. The grandson of four Holocaust survivors, he’s best known for having superglued himself to the Prime Minister to draw attention to communities impacted by aviation climate change.
