Award-winning author, activist and filmmaker Naomi Klein, joined in conversation with CNBC presenter Nessa Anwar, will answer questions from the Imperial community about what it takes to create change and how others can spark their own chain reactions. Naomi has dedicated her career to raising awareness about social injustice. Her books have been translated in over 30 languages, including On Fire, which was hailed by Fast Company magazine as one of 2019’s best books on climate change.
She was previously the co-founder of an organisation called The Leap, to create intersectional solutions to societal injustices including racial and economic inequalities as well as climate change, issues she believes originate from the same broken systems. Recently, Ms Klein has strived to amplify the voices of young activists and was hailed as ‘the inspirer of generations’ by Greta Thunberg.
