Can environmental activism save the world? And if it can, how?

Northwestern Professor of Management and Organizations Brayden King will be joined by Phil Radford (Founder, Progressive Multiplier) and Kady McFadden (Deputy Director, Illinois Sierra Club) for a conversation about the need for collective action to alleviate the perils of the current environmental crisis -- and the obstacles such action may face.
