In collaboration with the NH Healthcare Workers for Climate Action, VTCHA is hosting a 60 minute webinar with Bill McKibben. Bill will be talking about Third Act - a new organization he's just launched, and about how the work of health professionals can best move the needle on climate change. ThirdAct.org will be gathering "Experienced Americans" to "move Washington and Wall Street in the name of a fairer, more sustainable society and planet. We back up the great work of younger people, and we make good trouble of our own."

Bill's 1989 book The End of Nature is regarded as the first book for a general audience about climate change. He has gone on to write 17 other books, and is a regular contributor to the New Yorker and many media outlets. He was awarded the Right Livelihood Award (sometimes called the alternative Nobel) and the Gandhi Peace Prize. Foreign Policy named him to its inaugural list of the world’s 100 most important global thinkers. Bill serves as the Schumann Distinguished Scholar in Environmental Studies at Middlebury College, as a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
