Join us for a casual conversation with Naomi Klein as she reflects on the pivotal moment we are in as we work to address the climate crisis, to fight for climate justice, and to confront the detrimental impacts of colonialism and capitalism on our planet and society. What needs to happen to bring about transformative, systemic change at this critical time?
Bill McKibben has dubbed Klein “the intellectual godmother of the Green New Deal movement.” She is an award-winning journalist, activist, and the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture, and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University. Her New York Times best-selling books include On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal and This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate.
The Ecology Center is delighted to join the University of Michigan’s School of Environment and Sustainability in sponsoring this virtual conversation with such a prominent, provocative, and inspiring author. Naomi Klein’s expertise includes examination of how crises and disasters spur social change, and her work is uniquely apt to this moment of possibility and precarity--or, as she puts it, literal and political flammability.
We hope you can join us.
“Naomi Klein’s work has always moved and guided me. She is the great chronicler of our age of climate emergency, an inspirer of generations.” -Greta Thunberg
