Postponed: Mary Berry And Bill McKibben In Conversation

The Berry Center in Kentucky, led by Mary Berry, is a leading advocate for farmers, land-conserving communities, and rural economies. Bill McKibben has devoted decades as an author, educator, and activist to the case for a cleaner environment. They have protested together, spoken at conferences, fought for policy change, won acclaim for their work, and inspired a movement.

The two were scheduled to be in conversation with moderator Jodie Evans next Thursday, July 30, but a bike accident sent Bill McKibben to the hospital last week. He is now out of the hospital and in good spirits, but we are postponing the conversation to allow him more time to recover. Their conversation is rescheduled for Thursday, August 27 at 2 pm EDT. If you had already registered for this event, you do not need to re-register.  More information is available on our website.

Our next conversation will take place on Thursday, August 6 at 2 PM EDT with Greg Watson and John Todd, moderated by Natasha Hulst. Register here.

The July 22 Conversation with Gar Alperovitz and John McKnight is available to watch here, the July 16 Conversation with Richard Heinberg and Helena Norberg-Hodge here, and the July 9 Conversation with Michael Shuman and Judy Wicks here.
