We are a volunteer-driven, grassroots, non-partisan, non-profit organization working to empower people and organizations in North San Diego County to take action on climate change through education, collaboration and mobilization.
Our members and active volunteers provide education through monthly presentations in cities throughout North County. Scientists, climatologists, renewable energy experts and project planners, community activists and leaders provide information to inform our North County community about issues pertaining to climate change and information about how to take action.
Join us via Zoom for a special conversation with Third Act co-founder Bill McKibben, sponsored by NCCCA & SD350.
We will discuss the politics of climate change, how we can confront and stop the fossil fuel industry, the role of civil disobedience, and climate justice. We'll also ask Bill about how to stay motivated and active when climate action is stalled, and how we as individuals and local organizations can be most effective in advancing climate solutions at the local and national level given our dysfunctional political system.
The event will include Q&A from the audience.
Bill McKibben is an author, journalist and movement strategist. In 2014 was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the ‘alternative Nobel.’ His 1989 book The End of Nature is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change, and has appeared in 24 languages; he’s gone on to write a dozen more books. He is a co-founder of 350.org (which SanDiego350 is affiliated with) – the first planet-wide, grassroots climate change movement, which has organized twenty thousand rallies around the world in every country save North Korea, spearheaded the resistance to the Keystone Pipeline, and launched the fossil fuel divestment movement.
