This is the most critical time for climate change we have ever known: what happens in the next 3 years could decide the fate of our planet.
In 2018, we are hitting the road with 350 co-founder, Bill McKibben to shine a spotlight on the people, projects and ideas that are leading where our governments have failed to act. We have the solutions, and we know who is holding us back. It’s time for us to step up and fight like our lives depend on it.
350.org co-founder Bill McKibben will be joining movement leaders across the world to talk about what we can do to rapidly accelerate a just transition to 100% renewable energy.
Bill McKibben is an author, environmentalist, and activist. In 1988 he wrote The End of Nature, the first book for a common audience about global warming. He is a co-founder and Senior Advisor at 350.org, an international climate campaign that works in 188 countries around the world.
