Read moderator Joris Luyendijk’s introduction here
Naomi Klein, author and one of the key figures in the ‘alter-globalization movement’, sees climate change as a catalyst for change and a better world. With her new book This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein opens her readers’ eyes – as she did in her bestsellers No Logo and The Shock Doctrine – with a merciless analysis: everything must change. In a society that revolves around capitalism, we must first change the underlying social, economic and political ideologies before we can save nature.
Time Magazine called the book a “the first truly honest book ever written about climate change.” Join us for an evening about society, urgency and our ability to change. During this evening we will show clips of the documentary based on This Changes Everything, made by filmmaker Avi Lewis.
