Join Lucy Diavolo, Jenn Jackson, Kim Kelly and Maia Wikler in conversation about climate justice and intersectional activism.

As the political classes watch our world burn, a new movement of young people is rising to meet the challenge of climate catastrophe.

An urgent call for climate justice, No Planet B: A Teen Vogue Guide to the Climate Crisis, analyzes the environmental crisis with an intersectional lens - with critical feminist, Indigenous, antiracist and internationalist perspectives. No Planet B is a guide, a toolkit, a warning and a cause for hope. Join us for a conversation with contributors from the book about the urgent struggle for climate justice.

"I hope that this book embodies Teen Vogue’s motto of making young people feel seen and heard all over the world. I hope that it forces their parents, communities, loved ones, friends, and—most importantly—those in power to see that the health of our planet depends on how quickly and drastically we change our behaviors. I hope it forces them all to respond." —From the foreword by Lindsay Peoples Wagner

“This isn't your grandparent's environmental movement. A generation is on the move. Climate justice is young, queer, Black, Indigenous, and militant af. No Planet B demonstrates it is inexorably linked to racial justice, decolonization, and abolition. There's no turning back.”´╣úNick Estes, Red Nation
