Description

Naomi Klein is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling author, Senior Correspondent at The Intercept, the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair at Rutgers University and not least of all, a climate activist for our time. She has a unique understanding of the urgency with which the next generation is fighting for change, as well as an appreciation for the complex forces interwoven in the struggle for climate justice. In her most recent book, How to Change Everything: The Young Human's Guide to Protecting the Planet and Each Other, she finds the confluence of what binds young activists together from all walks of life -- fighting for their right to a future.

Join AAG Vice President, Dr. Emily Yeh, in conversation with Ms. Klein as they address how to bridge the gap between climate related research in geography and meaningful action, how we can support the youth generation of climate activists leading the charge and holding leaders accountable, how academic culture can transform to better support the climate justice mission and advocate for marginalized communities, and many other topics.
