Newsletter DWIH New York
July 2024
Dear reader, 
No long summer break for the DWIH New York! On July 15th, we have a great hybrid event coming up so you can join us from wherever you are. Additionally, there are a few exciting activities lined up from August until November that you should keep in mind. 
This month is bittersweet for the DWIH team: Our Communications Officer David Kuerbiss is leaving his position mid-July after about two and half years. Luckily, his successor will already start in August and bring fresh ideas with them! Please bear with us if the August newsletter will arrive in your mailbox a few days late or will be omitted. 
With kind regards, 
The DWIH New York Team

Four Questions for Cameron Abadi 
We had the pleasure of interviewing Cameron Abadi, author of the book “Climate Radicals” which will be published in the fall by Columbia Global Reports. In the book, Abadi profiles the fascinating activists of Letzte Generation, known for gluing themselves to street intersections and throwing food on works of art; Ende Gelände, which demands the immediate phaseout of coal by occupying mines; and the German leaders of the global coalition Fridays for Future, which organizes school strikes (on Fridays) and many other large-scale demonstrations.
