Accelerate Climate Action: Bill McKibben tour in Australia ADL

In 2018, we are going to accelerate our response to climate change. We all know we have to.

As a part of 350 Australia’s push to make sure that climate change will be front and centre of every election going forward, their founder, inspiring speaker, author and environmentalist Bill McKibben, is coming back to Australia at the end of April and early May as part of a global effort to accelerate climate action.

We’re already moving towards a future without fossil fuels -- but it’s time to accelerate our response.

ABOUT BILL McKIBBEN

For those of you who don’t know, Bill McKibben is a global climate activist leader and inspiring speaker.

Bill’s 1989 groundbreaking book, The End of Nature, is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change and has been published in 24 languages. Since then he has written over a dozen more books, and founded 350.org, the first global grassroots climate change movement. In 2012, Bills article “Do the Math” for Rolling Stone magazine became one of the most read articles in the magazine’s history and changed the way the world thought about investment in fossil fuels.

In 2014 Bill was awarded the Right Livelihood Prize, sometimes called the ‘alternative Nobel.’

ABOUT THE TOUR

Bill’s tour will focus on how we can and must join together to keep the pressure on in Australia and around the world. He’ll talk about building on our work to #StopAdani, the push for fossil fuel divestment and 350’s and the groundbreaking NYC legal case against five of the world’s biggest oil companies, and ensure climate change is the number one issue on any election agenda.
