Distinguished Speaker Series: Bill McKibben

Tuesday, October 30 | 6:15 PM | ASEAN Auditorium, Cabot Center

Join Tisch College for an engaging conversation with author, activist, and environmentalist Bill McKibben. Currently serving as the Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College, McKibben is the founder of, the first global grassroots climate change movement, which has organized 20,000 rallies around the world in every country save North Korea, spearheaded the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline, and launched the fast-growing fossil fuel divestment movement. A prolific author, McKibben’s seminal 1989 book The End of Nature is regarded as one of the first written for a general audience on the realities of climate change. McKibben has received numerous awards and recognitions for his work—including being named to Foreign Policy’s inaugural list of 100 most important global thinkers and the Boston Globe citing him as “probably America’s most important environmentalist.”

Cosponsored by the Tufts Office of Sustainability, the Environmental Studies Program, the Tufts Institute for the Environment, the Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, and the Fletcher School’s Center for International Environment and Resource Policy.
