Since 1989, with his bestseller The End of Nature, New York writer and climate visionary Bill McKibbenhas been at the forefront of inspiring climate action. In 2008, along with university students and friends, he co-founded 350.org, now a grassroots global network mobilizing millions of young people in the existential crisis of our lifetimes: the survival of humanity.
So far, it’s been mostly young people who’ve spoken out about the climate crisis. But recently, McKibben has focused on engaging an older generationof Americans that might help tip the balance in time.
The good news? It’s OUR generation! As he and his colleague Akaya Windwood recently wrote in a Los Anegles Times op-ed, it’s time for us to step up to seek an impact on climate via Third Act, a new national network of elders supporting younger activists. Ashby Village’s Elder Action has been invited to become a founding partner.
