About this event:


The Ethics/Religion and Society Program and the Brueggeman Center for Dialogue warmly invite you to join "A Conversation with Bill McKibben", Wednesday, April 20th @ 4PM.

Bill McKibben is a founder of Third Act, which organizes people over the age of 60 to work on climate and racial justice. He founded the first global grassroots climate campaign, 350.org, and serves as the Schumann Distinguished Professor in Residence at Middlebury College in Vermont. In 2014 he was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the ‘alternative Nobel,’ in the Swedish Parliament. He’s also won the Gandhi Peace Award, and has received honorary degrees from 19 colleges and universities. McKibben has written over a dozen books about the environment, including his first, The End of Nature, published in 1989, and the forthcoming The Flag, the Cross, and the Station Wagon: A Graying American Looks Back at his Suburban Boyhood and Wonders What the Hell Happened.

As a preliminary to Earth Day 2022, McKibben will address issues of climate justice in his lecture, "Stop the World from Burning -- Justice and Practicality, Youth and Age".

This online event is free and open to the Xavier University Community and to members of the public.
