The College of the Humanities and Mahatma Gandhi Peace Council of Ottawa invite all to attend a public lecture at Carleton University with internationally-renowned climate activist, environmentalist and author Bill McKibben.
Synopsis: Bill McKibben addresses the monumental challenge posed by global warming and explains how human activities, notably the burning of fossil fuels, have led to an unprecedented rise in global temperatures. He will talk about the growing global environmental movement, which can find inspiration from various sources including the non-violent resistance championed by Mahatma Gandhi to illustrate how coordinated, peaceful global activism can drive significant change.
