Join Ashby Village Elder Action & Village Movement California for this Climate Action Event

Since 1989, with his bestseller The End of Nature, New Yorker writer and climate visionary Bill McKibben has 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 generation of 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 an Los Angeles 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.

On Sunday, January 9, 2022, from 2-4PM PST, Bill McKibben will make the next presentation for our Ashby Village Arts & Culture Series about Third Act, co-sponsored by Village Movement California, the statewide association of California Villages. He promises to inform us how to tap our strengths— our experience, networks, time, and wisdom—for our most valuable legacy: protecting the future of our children, grandchildren and the human species.

Please join us to learn what we can do together about the climate crisis—and to acquaint Bill McKibben with our Villages and what we can bring to Third Act. You may never attend a more compelling or hopeful presentation!
