Fossil Free Acceleration Tour: Bill McKibben – livestream from Auckland
07/05/2018 at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
350 Aotearoa is pleased to announce, this coming May, the ‘Fossil Free Acceleration Tour’ with author, educator, and environmentalist, Bill McKibben.
Ever since the release of his first book ‘The End of Nature’ 30 years ago, Bill McKibben has become one of the world’s most notable commentators on climate change. He is a founder of 350.org, a 2014 recipient of the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the ‘alternative Nobel’, and is a founding fellow of the Sanders Institute.
The Fossil Free Acceleration Tour will engage with local communities and movements here in Aotearoa on building a fast and just transition to a world powered by 100% renewable energy for all. The Fossil Free campaign began in 2012, as a powerful movement of citizens around the world working to build a future that is free from the destructive impacts of climate change, and free from the massive, out-of-control corporations that caused it.
