Chloe Aridjis, award-winning novelist, Sea Monsters (2020) and organizer for Writers Rebel, and Wanjira Mathai, Regional Director for Africa at the World Resources Institute, will present "The Climate of Resistance."

Activists Aridjis and Mathai are powerful, fierce, compassionate leaders in the global environmental movement. A writer and an organizer, they are also the daughters of iconic conservation heroes: Homero Aridjis, a Mexican poet who started Grupo de Cien to save the monarch butterflies in the forests of Morelia; and Nobel Peace Laureate Wangari Mathai of Kenya, founder of the Green Belt Movement, which has planted more than 51 million trees since 1977. Aridjis and Mathai will discuss how conservation is a generational stance and share what they are seeing, feeling, dreaming and doing as women leaders of their generation.

Respondent: Geralyn Dreyfous, Swartz Family Foundation, Harvard Divinity School

Brian Kirbis of Theasophia will open the conversation with a tea pouring. Each conversation will be conducted online by Terry Tempest Williams, writer-in-residence at Harvard Divinity School.
