Bill McKibben is an American environmentalist, journalist and author who founded the 350.org campaign, which was described as the largest global coordinated rally of any kind. He calls for bold and equitable solutions to the environmental crisis, particularly through alternative energy use, more localized economies and a deeper connection with nature. In this lecture, McKibben will speak on the role that faith and faith groups might have in motivating the transformative action required to achieve a sustainable future.
McKibben is the author of over a dozen books, including The End of Nature, Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future and most recently, Eaarth. He writes regularly for the New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly and The New York Review of Books.
He is giving this free, public lecture at the end of the Sustainability in Crisis conference at which he is a keynote speaker.
