Join us for a lecture, Q&A discussion, and workshop with Anastasia Fomina, Russian environmental activist. Anastasia Fomina is a youth activist and Fridays for Future Russia climate strike organizer from the industrial city of Arkhangelsk, Russia. She is also a lead organizer for the regional environmental movement “42” (Экологическое движение 42), which focuses on climate change education and waste processing in the Russian context. Fomina translates materials for the International Anti-Nuclear Network, holds solo pickets, organizes global strikes, and hosts lectures and film screenings about climate change. Fomina’s commitment to intersectional approaches to environmental activism has led her to coordinate the first feminist movement in Arkhangelsk. Conducted in Russian with English interpretation. Both events free and open to the public. Stay tuned for more information on future events in the Voices from the Eastern European Anthropocene speaker series featuring Svetlana Alexievich.
