Join us as the Nation Institute, the Gould Family Foundation, and The New School present the second annual Jonathan Schell Memorial Lecture on the Fate of the Earth featuring Beatrice Fihn.
Beatrice Fihn is the Executive Director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize-winning campaign coalition that works to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons.
The Jonathan Schell Memorial Lecture Series on the Fate of the Earth was established to honor the memory of Nation Institute fellow Jonathan Schell and takes its name from his 1982 work on the consequences of nuclear war. It is an annual lecture of original work delivered by a speaker selected each year by committee addressing topics such as environmentalism, nuclear disarmament, peace, and other issues about the future of humanity and other life on the Earth.
