One of the world’s leading environmentalists will help Tulsa celebrate Earth Day 2019.
Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, will speak at this month’s Tulsa Earth Day Celebration, presented April 20 by the Tulsa Earth Coalition. Brune is the author of “Coming Clean: Breaking America’s Addiction to Oil and Coal.”
“This will be Michael Brune’s first trip to Tulsa, and he is excited to bring his message to us at a time when our community and our nation need to engage directly to prevent climate change,” says Barbara VanHanken, chairwoman of the Green Country Sierra Club, one of the environmental and social justice organizations that comprise the Tulsa Earth Coalition. “He will be speaking about the Green New Deal, which is a new way to refocus our economy at the same time we improve the quality of our environment.”
In addition to hearing from Brune and other notable environmental speakers, guests to the Tulsa Earth Day Celebration will find educational booths and demos — including electric vehicles to ride in and drive — musical artists, family activities and local cuisine.
