Environmental Advocacy Journalist to Speak at DCC


October 14, 2013 – Emily Hunter, an environmental advocacy journalist and daughter of Greenpeace co-founder Robert Hunter, will come to Dutchess Community College’s James and Betty Hall Theatre on Oct. 17 at 12:30 p.m. to present a Lyceum called “Youth Revolt: A New Generation of Change.” The talk is free and open to the public.

Hunter recently released her first book, “The Next Eco-Warriors,” which focuses on stories of 22 young eco-activists. The book, and her presentation, will cover the eco-activists’ work on the issues of energy use, overfishing, waste management, overconsumption, the disappearance of indigenous cultures, the rainforests and more.

A Canadian, she has hosted and co-produced four TV documentaries for MTV News Canada, covering subjects such as tar sands and the G20 protests.
