A Conversation with Bill McKibben & Fossil-Free UC on Climate Justice & Divestment
The climate justice movement is changing the conversation with many creative new strategies, including Fridays for the Future, the Green New Deal, and constant pressure for our institutions and municipalities to divest from fossil fuels. In July 2019, faculty across the UC system voted in favor of divesting from 200 publicly traded fossil fuel companies. While waiting for the UC Regents’ decision, activists of all ages continue to mobilize for divestment and climate justice. With: Bill McKibben, Right Livelihood Award laureate and co-founder of 350.org; Clair Brown, UC Berkeley Professor of Economics; Laurel Levin, student organizer with #FossilFreeUC; Kristy Drutman, host of Brown Girl Green. Hosted by: Chris Benner, Institute for Social Transformation at UC Santa Cruz; David Shaw, Right Livelihood College at UC Santa Cruz.
