Free Online Webinar: Earth Day 50 Years Later

Learning from Earth Day 50 Years Later with Derek Hoshiko
April 14
Museum of History and Industry

Join MOHAI’s free live 2020 Denny Lecture webinar featuring local climate activist and community organizer Derek Hoshiko on Tuesday, April 14, 2020. The museum is pleased to provide this popular annual event online and free of charge.

With record breaking temperatures, rising sea levels, and melting ice caps, the 1970 call for an Earth Day of environmental action has never been more relevant. From science to policy to activism, how has our state grappled with these issues over the past 50 years and what do we do next?
Explore what we can learn from the history of environmentalism, and how we can face the present climate crisis. During this lecture turned webinar, Derek Hoshiko will explore movement moments from the first Earth Day in 1970 to the WTO “Battle in Seattle” in 1999, from Occupy Wall Street to the Thin Green Line, and from the youth #ClimateStrike and #FridaysForFuture to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Derek Hoshiko will share his personal journey and  honor the work of activists marked by 50 years of Earth Day celebrations and days of action, while acknowledging where we have failed.

April 14, 7 – 9 pm
