The Kickoff Meeting

FOSSIL FREE YALE is kicking off the campaign to get Yale to divest from the fossil fuels exacerbating the climate crisis. Climate change is the biggest crisis of our time, and, therefore, our kickoff will be the biggest event of your weekend. Join us Saturday, February 2nd, in 211 Linsley-Chittenden (LC) at 4pm, for a beginning that will go down in Yale history. Speakers will include diverse student organizers from across Yale. Also, we will be hearing from some celebrities via video:

  • Bill McKibben, renowned activist, founder of the climate coalition 350.org, and a leader of the national FOSSIL FREE campaign that has inspired hundreds of US colleges to action
  • Kumi Naidoo, International Executive Director of Greenpeace
  • Naomi Klein, Canadian author and activist
  • Josh Fox, American film director, best known for “Gasland”
  • Desmond Tutu, retired bishop, anti-Apartheid campaigner, and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.
