How to be a bad activist: Tori Tsui

Force of Nature

04-03-2024 • 38 mins

What even is a ‘perfect’ activist?

Tori Tsui (she/they) is a Bristol-based climate activist, speaker, writer and consultant from Hong Kong. She is the co-founder of the space, Bad Activist Collective, and a member of the climate coalition, Unite For Climate Action. In 2023, they released their debut book 'It's Not Just You', which explores the intersections between mental health and the climate crisis.

To kick off the first episode of season 3, Confessions of a Climate Activist, Clover sits down with Tori Tsui to explore how to be a bad activist. In this conversation, Clover and Tori discuss the pressure they've felt to be perfect activists, explore how the fear of being a ‘bad activist’ has dissuaded people from joining the climate movement, and, finally, Tori spills their juiciest climate confession!

“We’ve got to broaden this view of what activism entails, and recognise that direct action is one part of the puzzle.” -Tori Tsui
