Organizing to Cool the Planet: A Presentation by Maeve McBride

Organizing to Cool the Planet: A Presentation by Maeve McBride
Wed, 03/05/2014 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Community Center, Media Room, Goddard College, 123 Pitkin Rd.
Plainfield, VT

Maeve McBride, Coordinator for 350Vermont, will weave together her personal story of activism, the current state of the climate crisis, and 350Vermont's organizing model to build a climate justice movement in Vermont.

She will speak about 350Vermont's current campaigns to keep Vermont Tar Sands free, and to divest institutions from fossil fuel companies, and share tools and personal reflections on ways for people to engage and navigate the climate crisis. She will draw from "Organizing Cools the Planet" by Hilary Moore & Joshua Kahn-Russell and resources from The Ruckus Society.

This event is free and open to the public as presented by Goddard's Bachelor of Arts in Sustainability program. Questions? Contact Catherine Lowther at catherine.lowther@goddard.edu.
