Brianna Craft holds a master’s degree in environmental studies from Brown University and is an alumna of the University of Washington. She’s currently a senior researcher at the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED). Craft works to further equity in the United Nations’ climate change negotiations for the world’s poorest countries, which have done the least to cause the climate crisis but are the most vulnerable to its impacts. At this event she will read excerpts from her new book - Everything That Rises: A Climate Change Memoir.
“The most unusual and authentic book you will ever read on climate change. The international climate change negotiation may appear as an institutionalized impersonal political process. Craft shows how it is actually deeply personal, mysteriously exhilarating and profoundly moving.” - Christiana Figueres, author of The Future We Choose: The Stubborn Optimist’s Guide to the Climate Crisis and former executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
