The New Climate
Tuesday, January 23, 2:30-4:00 p.m.
Egyptian Theatre, 328 Main St.
The impact of climate change has been felt dramatically by Native communities in the U.S. and around the world. Despite poisoned resources, corporatism, and an existential threat to their homelands, these vulnerable communities rarely fall under the spotlight, and their stories go untold.
This special New Climate discussion welcomes Anote Tong, former president of the disappearing island of Kiribati; Bartholomew Powaukee, Environmental and Water Quality Director for Utah's Ute Tribe; Tashka Yawanawa, chief of the Yawanawa; and moderator Janaya Khan of Black Lives Matter, Canada; all at the forefront of the conservation fight to deconstruct histories and mythologies around climate change, discuss how story and technology can share a hidden point of view, and reveal creative initiatives to combat current trends and thinking around the climate change. Tue. 1/23, 2:30 p.m., Egyptian, PC
