Naomi Klein in Conversation With Miko Vergun & Isaac Vergun

February 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

From Naomi Klein — award-winning journalist, one of the foremost voices for climate justice, and author of This Changes Everything and On Fire — comes How to Change Everything (Atheneum Books for Young Readers), an empowering, engaging young readers guide to understanding and battling climate change. Warmer temperatures. Fires in the Amazon. Superstorms. These are just some of the effects of climate change that we are already experiencing. The good news is that we can all do something about it. A movement is already underway to combat not only the environmental effects of climate change but also to fight for climate justice and make a fair and livable future possible for everyone. And young people are not just part of that movement, they are leading the way. They are showing us that this moment of danger is also a moment of great opportunity — an opportunity to change everything. Full of empowering stories of young leaders all over the world, How to Change Everything offers young readers a comprehensive look at the state of the climate today and how we got here, while also providing the tools they need to join this fight to protect and reshape the planet they will inherit. Klein will be joined in conversation by Miko Vergun and Isaac Vergun, federal plaintiffs in Juliana v. U.S. and cofounders and youth climate leaders with Youth Acting for our Earth.
