Naomi Klein on climate, justice and hope.

The climate crisis confronts each of us, including and especially young people, with urgent questions and bewildering choices about how to live, who to be, what to learn, where to go and what to do at this momentous historical crossroads. This year’s Margolin Lecture will be delivered by Naomi Klein—an award-winning journalist, celebrated author, and renowned climate justice activist—who will address the radical implications of what we are now facing and how we might come to grips with it. Naomi Klein is a Senior Correspondent at The Intercept, a Puffin Writing Fellow at Type Media Center, and the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University. Her books include On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, and The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. Bill McKibben will provide opening remarks and Prof. Dan Suarez will facilitate discussion. This Margolin Lecture will mark the first in a series of events at Middlebury exploring what it means to be coming of age in an age of climate catastrophe.
