Social movements have been crucial in developing opportunities for political participation. In this article, we first provide some background information on what social movements are and how they have developed over time. We then focus on a specific type of social move- ments - the sustainable community movement organisations (SCMOs) - which, practising political consumerism at the local but developing goals at the global level - have become increasingly relevant in recent years. We then focus on the Italian case, showing how in the past two decades sustainable consumption, practised especially by ‘politically aware’ con- sumers, has grown significantly. In the concluding section of the article, we discuss the past, present and future possible impact of SMOs, also beyond the Italian context.
