Diesen Herbst kommt Autor, Aktivist und Mitbegründer der internationalen Klimakampagne 350.org - Bill McKibben - nach Deutschland, um den Tourstart von Fossil Free Europe mit euch zu feiern. Wie bei den vorherigen, ausverkauften Tourstops in den USA und Australien wird Bill McKibben darstellen, wie das Businessmodell der fossilen Brennstoffindustrie unser Klima zerstört und somit eine erschreckend reale Bedrohung für unsere Gesellschaften schafft.

Dies ist kein typischer Vortrag, sondern ein multi-mediales Erlebnis, welches den Anfang für die Fossil Free Bewegung in Europa darstellen wird. Bill McKibben wird Sprecher_innen aus einem weiten Bewegungsspektrum zusammenbringen, darunter Aktivist_innen, Klimawissenschaftler_innen und andere Expert_innen aus der Klimabewegung. Sie werden ein Plädoyer für die Desinvestition von fossilen Brennstoffen halten. Sie werden zeigen, dass zukunftsweisende Geldanlagen, Investitionen in die fossile Brennstoffindustrie moralisch, ökologisch und ökonomisch ausschließen. Kraftvolle Musik von dem überragenden Künster Filastine wird die Show untermalen.

Das Event wird präsentiert von 350.org.

This autumn, acclaimed author, activist, and co-founder of the international climate campaign 350.org – Bill McKibben – will lead the Fossil Free Europe Tour. As with previous sell-out tours in the USA and Australia, he will make the case for how the core business model of the fossil fuel industry is destroying our climate, and poses the greatest threat humanity has ever faced.

This won't be a typical lecture, but a multi-media experience that will help galvanise the movement. McKibben will bring together, on stage and on video, an impressive group of social movement leaders, organisers, climate scientists, and opinion leaders to make the case that divesting from fossil fuel companies is not just morally just, but ecologically and economically smart. He will do so in collaboration with local movement leaders and live musical performances from the ground-breaking artist Filastine.

This event is presented by 350.org.
