Author shares his research on the political economy of the environment
Brockville, ON - Activist, author, researcher and PhD student Umair Muhammad will present his book, Confronting Injustice, a Social Activism in the Age of Individualism, some startling facts about water shortages around the world, who is destroying the environment and the top three world pollution emitters.
Muhammad will speak at Meet the Author (BookMarks), hosted by the Friends of the Brockville Public Library at 1:30 p.m., on Saturday, February 18, upstairs at the Library, 23 Buell Street, Brockville.
"We need to change the structure of our social system, not our light bulbs," expressed Muhammad. "The scale of the problems we need to address should make it clear that individualist, lifestyle-centric approaches to activism will not suffice."
This event is free to the public, with a talk, question and answer segment, meet the author, as well as the sale of Confronting Injustice.
