TILLgeorgetown and the Norwalk River Watershed Association host a community conversation with Zanagee Artis, co-founder of the youth climate change and environmental justice movement Zero Hour (“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”)
Oxford University economist Kate Raworth argues we are the first generation to grasp the full extent of the damage wrought by our ecological overshoot and likely the last generation with a chance to right our planetary course. Our youngest people have the most to lose as climate impacts forfeit a future hospitable to human life and the biodiversity that sustains us.
Raised in Clinton, CT, Zanagee is a freshman at Brown University, Providence. Read more about Zero Hour in The New York Times (July 21, 2018). Adults welcome in attendance with a young person (18 years and under).
