Naomi Klein at Oregon State University

Naomi-Klein-credit-Kourosh-KeshiriOn Wednesday, April 5 the Spring Creek Project will host climate activist Naomi Klein. Klein authored This Changes Everything: Capitalism versus The Climate, which insists that climate change is not about carbon, but about capitalism. Klein explains how the current climate crisis challenges us to restructure a failed economic system to address the alarming consequences of a changing climate, while simultaneously improving social and economic failings in society.

Her talk at OSU will address the current social and political issues, and how to mount an effective resistance to the powers that be.

In preparation for Klein’s visit, the Spring Creek Project is hosting a book club reading featuring This Changes Everything, which will include a series of discussions on the book. The book club will be meeting at the Multicultural Literacy Center on Wednesdays, March 1 and March 15 at 6 p.m.

The Spring Creek Project – an initiative from the College of Liberal Arts – aims to find new ways to understand and re-imagine our relationship with the natural world, with a marriage of wisdom from environmental sciences, philosophy, and the arts.

This exciting talk will go down at The LaSells Stewart Center on 875 SW 26th Street on Wednesday, April 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are free, but limited – get yours while they last!
