Naomi Klein to speak in Winnipeg April 8th, 2016
Award-winning Canadian author Naomi Klein will be speaking on climate and economic justice in Winnipeg next Spring. The event is hosted by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Manitoba office. www.naomikleinwpg2016.eventbrite.ca
A leading intellectual, sought-after public speaker and activist, Klein will be speaking about her recent New York Times bestselling book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate (2014). Klein exposes the myths clouding the climate debate. The climate crisis is real and to address it Klein argues that corporate power needs to be reined in, local economies rebuilt, and democracy reclaimed. Klein inspires us to use climate change as an opportunity to reinvigorate democracy and join people’s movements across the globe united against fossil fuels and advancing renewable energy.
Ms. Klein will be introduced by Clayton Thomas-Muller, an activist for Indigenous self-determination and environmental justice. Thomas-Muller is from Mathais Colomb Cree Nation (Pukatawagan) in Northern Manitoba and works now with 350.org, a global grass roots movement to solve the climate crisis. Klein is a member of the board of directors of 350.org,
Author of celebrated international bestselling books including No Logo (1999) and The Shock Doctrine (2007), Ms. Klein is also an award-winning journalist and accomplished filmmaker (with her partner, Avi Lewis). More recently, Ms. Klein has advised the Vatican and Pope Francis on climate change and launched the Leap Manifesto during the Toronto International Film Festival debut of the film for This Changes Everything.
