Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will discuss our environmental destiny at the Conference on Social Change hosted by Walden University on Thursday, July 19.
RFK Jr. will give the keynote address and head the list of prominent speakers at this year’s conference, “Sustainability and Social Change: Uncommon Vision for the Common Good.”
Nearly 40 workshops and presentations, hosted by Walden University faculty and national and community leaders, will address a variety of sustainability issues such as new technologies for sustainability, sustainable globalization, population growth’s effect on the environment, sustainable development and the climate change’s impact on war and peace. The conference will also feature a documentary film series, performing artists expressing social change issues and tours of sustainability activities in the Twin Cities.
Kennedy will talk about how regulatory rollbacks have threatened our health, our national security, and democracy as we know it. He will examine how the administration has orchestrated these rollbacks almost entirely outside of public scrutiny and in tandem with the same industries that these laws are meant to regulate. He will be signing copies of his book, Crimes Against Nature, following the discussion.
WHEN/WHERE: 8:30 a.m. at Northrop Auditorium, 84 Church St. S.E., Minneapolis; 612-625-6000; FREE tickets available at the U of M Bookstore at Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E., Minneapolis.
