Author, activist and 350.org founder Bill McKibben is in the country soon and I’d recommend you check him out.
Bill is the author of several books including "The End of Nature", a seminal book on climate change and "Deep Economy" an US national bestseller about building local economies. He is also the founder of 350.org, a rapidly growing global movement working to raise awareness about and action on climate change issues.
McKibben has public appearances planned in Dunedin, Wanaka, Christchurch, Wellington, Raglan, Hamilton and Auckland. The full tour PDF (which includes the details of each appearance) is downloadable here (PDF).
Greenpeace is excited to host a climate action discussion with NGOs with McKibben building up the pressure for Governments around the world to do good at Copenhagen. If you’re in Auckland you might want to catch up with him on the lovely Waiheke Island, where the great Transition Towns network are hosting his talk.
May 3rd, 4 - 5.30pm at Te Huruhi school hall. Entry by Koha. RSVP to Gabrielle 372-2200
