Join Bill McKibben, James Balog, John Adams and others for conversation about engaging the next generation in climate action<http://cop21.dickinson.edu/content/our-cop21-event>  Whether Paris produces a strong or weak agreement, civil society actors of all stripes and generations are needed to create political will for change and to take and sustain actions that will prevent dangerous climate change and build resilience. While everyone’s efforts are needed, younger generations have critical roles to play. What are young people doing on climate change? Are they building a movement that is having meaningful impacts? How can efforts be connected for greater impact? Come participate in the conversation. This event is organized by the Dickinson College COP21 Delegation.
