CLIMATE CHANGE & THE FUTURE OF LIFE ON EARTH • RICHARD LEAKEY (Paleoanthropologist, Environmentalist)
Named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Greatest Minds of the 20th Century,” Leakey and his family have made some of the most significant fossil discoveries in history. After 40 years of linking the past to the present, Leakey looks to the future and our stewardship of the climate. As we threaten biodiversity and damage ecosystems, could we be revving up the planet for the next major mass extinction—our own?
Every year the Oregon World Affairs Council puts on a series of speakers featuring some of the most influential people in the world. This year’s speakers are George Papandreou, Mona Eltahawy and Richard Leakey.
Tickets are $37.50 for this year’s series of three speakers (or $12.50 per speaker), but ASLC and Student Activities are re-selling tickets to students for $6 each (or $18 for all three of this year’s speakers). You can only purchase one ticket per speaker. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a ticket, and be sure to specify which speaker(s) you want tickets for. Tickets will be distributed on a rolling basis throughout this semester and you can pay for your ticket(s) when you pick them up (cash only please) from Student Activities (lower level of Templeton in the Campus Living suite). Send your requests and pick up/pay for your tickets soon because there is a limited number of tickets and they are available on a first-come basis!
