Bill McKibben talks alongside local leaders in the climate movement on building a fast and just transition to a world powered by 100% renewable energy for all. Live-streamed from Auckland Town Hall.

Ever since the release of his first book ‘The End of Nature’ 30 years ago, Bill McKibben has become one of the world’s most notable commentators on climate change. Since co-founding 350.org, he has turned to grassroots activism, participating in the Fossil Free campaign, a powerful movement of citizens which demands:

- A fast + just transition to 100% renewable energy for all.
- No new fossil fuel projects anywhere.
- Not a penny more for dirty energy

In January 2018, he was instrumental in New York City’s motion to sue five major energy companies for damages from climate change, and their decision to divest US$5billion from fossil fuel projects. Following this success, Bill McKibben is now making his way to Aotearoa on his global Fossil Free Acceleration Tour

350 Aotearoa have already had success in leveraging power where it’s most effective — they have lobbied our universities, banks and councils to pull funding from fossil fuel projects and cut institutional ties with this industry.

The Maoriland Charitable Trust are thrilled and excited for the opportunity to welcome Bill McKibben and accelerate the fossil free movement here in Aotearoa.

Join us at the Māoriland Hub to watch the live stream direct from Auckland.
