The Intercept – TRANSCEND Media Service

10 Sep 2019 – The Intercept invites you to watch a special event in New York City hosted by Intercept senior correspondent Naomi Klein, author of the forthcoming book On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal, and headlined by trailblazing climate activist Greta Thunberg, author of No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference.

Together with youth leaders Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Xiye Bastida, and Vic Barrett, as well as Indigenous Amazon leader Tuntiak Katan, Thunberg and Klein helped us envision a just and sustainable future, confront our climate emergency, and discuss the emerging cross-generational, transnational movement — including people of all races, classes, and backgrounds — that is our best hope for a sustainable planet. Both a celebration of youth activism and a reflection on how to break through the political and economic barriers preventing meaningful climate action, “The Right to a Future” brought together a singular group of environmental leaders who are on the forefront of the battle to secure a thriving future for many generations to come.
