Got this off the always great AIDG blog (be sure to drop them some cash money to support their great work). AIDG does amazing work with sustainable business development in countries that need it most. I know I fall all overmyself with how cool they are, but they really are that cool! Subscribe to their rss feed for a constant diet of sustainable goodness!
Bill Mckibben is THE MAN. He has done so much to get the environmental movement to where it is today, and yet gets almost no credit. He is brilliant and you should check him out if you live in the area.
Few have done more to raise public awareness or inspire action
on climate change than Bill McKibben.
In 1989, McKibben first brought climate change to the publicâ€™s attention with
the publication of The End of Nature. He has written on environmental issues
for The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, Harperâ€™s, Rolling Stone, and Outside.
Recently, he has launched a campaign, Step It Up, to mobilize citizens to
demand 80% cuts in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Come hear McKibben speak on â€œBuilding the New Climate Movementâ€ as part of
Focus the Nation, a national event aimed at encouraging discussion and action on climate change.
Parking is free in the Davis Parking Facility at the collegeâ€™s Route 135 Entrance.
Alumnae Hall is located adjacent to the parking garage.
All are welcome. The talk is free and open to the public. Contact the Office of Public Affairs for more information: (781) 283-2373
