> On February 16, one of the richest men on earth, Bill Gates, will release his vision of climate solutions in his new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster” <https://lectures.org/event/bill-gates/>. Climate change is one of the crises used by Gates and his Foundation to justify urgent, technocratic “solutions” for altering food systems around the world.
> In response, we aim to amplify the work of social movements organizing in Seattle and around the world for Climate Justice. To counter top-down, billionaire expertise as the means of solving our world’s most pressing issues, our panelists will present an alternative approach centered on Food Sovereignty, with communities leading the way to a climate just future.
