Join us on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, at The New School’s Tishman Auditorium as The Nation Institute and the Gould Family Foundation present the third annual Jonathan Schell Memorial Lecture on the Fate of the Earth featuring Beatrice Fihn.
Please note that, though the event is free, RSVPs are required.
Beatrice Fihn is the Executive Director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize-winning campaign coalition that works to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons. Previously, Beatrice managed the disarmament programme at the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom and the Reaching Critical Will project as well as working for the Geneva Centre for Security Policy. She has a law degree from the University of London.
The Jonathan Schell Memorial Lecture Series on the Fate of the Earth was established to honor the memory of Nation Institute fellow Jonathan Schell and takes its name from his 1982 work on the consequences of nuclear war. It is an annual lecture of original work delivered by a speaker selected each year by committee addressing topics such as environmentalism, nuclear disarmament, peace, and other issues about the future of humanity and other life on the Earth.
This program is organized by the Nation Institute and The Gould Family Foundation and co-sponsored by The New School and the Tishman Environment and Design Center.Buy tickets/get more info now
