The UMass History Department presents the 2020-21 Feinberg Series:
Planet on a Precipice:Histories and futures of the environmental emergency

Young people have transformed the climate movement. Youth of color and youth from the Global South have been especially central in this process. Ugandan climate activist Vanessa Nakate, executive director of the Sunrise Movement Varshini Prakash ‘15, and other leading climate organizers will reflect on their personal experiences in the movement and share their organizing strategy, insights, and visions for the world they’re fighting to win. 

This event will be held in person if circumstances permit + live and recorded on Zoom, Facebook and YouTube. Spanish interpretation and closed captioning will be available.
