April 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

UPDATE MARCH 12 – This event is POSTPONED. No new date has been announced yet.

Bill McKibben, one of America’s best-known advocates for action on climate change, will give a lecture, “Our Changing Climate: A Global Movement of Reform,” at UNC Asheville’s Kimmel Arena at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 2. This talk is free and open to everyone, with support from The David and Lin Brown Visionary Lecture Series and The Ecology Wildlife Foundation Fund.

 

Seating at this free, unticketed event is first-come, first-served. Kimmel Arena’s “Clear Bag Policy” will be in effect; please do not bring backpacks.

About Bill McKibben:
McKibben is widely credited with having authored the first book on global warming written for a general audience – published in 1989, “The End of Nature” was written with the hope and expectation that simply and clearly stating the problem, then called the “greenhouse effect,” would lead to corrective action. In the succeeding three decades, McKibben has continued to write, speak out, and organize mass actions around the world. He is a founder of 350.org, an international movement “working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy.” Last year, McKibben published a new book, “Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?” More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1087382318268661/?active_tab=about
