Come and watch a live-stream of the independent talk between NYT-Bestselling author Jonathan Safran Foer and the danish former Minister of Climate and Energy Connie Hedegaard on the topic of global climate change!
In collaboration with CPH:DOX, the Royal Danish Library and Kildevæld Kulturcenter, we invite you to join an exciting evening with two inspiring special guests:
Jonathan Safran Foer, american novelist and activist, published the New York Times best-seller book ‘Eating Animals’ in 2009, which discusses what it means to eat animals in an industrialized world. In 2017, the feature-length documentary adaptation of the book premiered, which brought the examination of our dietary choices and the food we put in our bodies into an exciting and enlightening format. His brand new book ‘We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast’ explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way.
Connie Hedegaard is a Danish politician, who was European Commissioner for Climate Action in the European Commission, hosted the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009 on behalf of Denmark, and was Danish Minister for Climate and Energy from 2007 - 2010 as well as the Danish Minister for the Environment from 2004 - 2007. She is a member of the Conservative People's Party (DKF), and worked as a journalist at DR, the Danish national broadcaster, prior to her political career.
