Join us for a casual, informal lunch conversation and networking with Nick Engelfried, author of “Movement Makers: How Young Activists Upended the Politics of Climate Change,” will share insights from investigating the dramatic rise of youth-led climate activism. Over the course of two decades, young people have propelled the climate crisis into the political spotlight, with Middlebury College playing a key role. Come learn how lessons gleaned from interviews with over 100 past and current leaders of the movement can inform our work fighting for a livable planet today.

Movement Makers, an updated edition of which was released this year, chronicles the growth of youth climate organizing from the early 2000s to the present. At this event, Nick will share behind-the-scenes details from his journey documenting this inspiring grassroots uprising which is transforming politics as usual.
