Danni Paffard

Danielle Paffard is an activist and campaigner who’s been involved in a range of grassroots movements working on social and environmental justice. Politicised by Climate Camp, she helped initiate the direct action network UK Uncut that put corporate tax avoidance firmly on the political map and is founder and chair of Move Your Money. She’s done everything from performative oil spills with Liberate Tate, mass anti-fracking camps with Reclaim the Power to a week-long camping trip in a power station chimney.

She currently works coordinating the rapidly growing fossil fuel divestment campaign in the UK for 350.org, and was recently featured in BBC 3’s documentary ‘Fighting the System’ about young activists.

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
