CLIMATE CHANGE: “The Right to a Future, with Naomi Klein and Greta Thunberg” / The Intercept ☮

The Intercept invites you to a special event in New York City hosted by senior correspondent Naomi Klein and headlined by trailblazing climate activist Greta Thunberg. Together with youth leaders Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Xiye Bastida, and Vic Barrett, Greta and Naomi will help us visualize a just and sustainable future, confront our climate emergency, and discuss the emerging cross-generational, transnational movement that is our best hope for a sustainable planet. Both a celebration of youth activism and a reflection on how to break through the political and economic barriers preventing meaningful climate action, “The Right to a Future” will take place before the Global Climate Strike starting September 20 and the U.N. Climate Action Summit on September 23.
