An evening with Naomi Klein: the voice to challenge conventional capitalism in pursuit of climate and social justice.
Naomi Klein has risen to the social justice stage as an acclaimed journalist, filmmaker, and activist, earning the Sydney Peace Prize in 2016 for her work. She is best known for her criticism on capitalism, globalization, and war, as well as a more recent shift to promoting environmentalism. Klein has authored international bestsellers No Logo, The Shock Doctrine, and more recently, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, which has earned the Hilary Weston Writer's Prize for Nonfiction. Klein is consistently featured on influential speakers lists, including the 2014 Thought Leaders ranking, and sits on the board of directors of the climate activism 350.org, contributing to finding peace and justice for all.

The Gardened Heart Journal Project
posted on August 24, 2016
In the Garden of Reflection and Remembrance, journals sit on shelves under two benches, waiting for visitors to write on their blank pages. Throughout the seasons, students, staff, community members, parents, and alumni have filled these journals with quick notes, long reveries, hopes, dreams, and sorrows. The passage of time is indicated in the journals as the semester begins, midterms approach, finals come crashing down, summer nears, and graduation is celebrated.
Writers expressed an eagerness to connect with their community on the journal pages, a yearning to be heard, and a need for their story to be recorded. Some authors simply desired to express their thoughts and feelings, however profound, insignificant, or fleeting. Overall, the tone of the journal entries is one of sharing, concern, and honest discernment.
As with many projects, this one began with a question: “What are people sharing or experiencing through the journals?” This simple question came to be answered through an engaging and eye-opening process. In the end, fifteen journals were reviewed, containing 3,162 journal entries/excerpts (including drawings). This report focuses on the themes of religion, contemplation, meditation, thoughtfulness, the garden and labyrinth, sacred places, relationships, campus experiences, suicide and depression, and encouragement and community.
Click here to view the final product in all its beauty. These pages will make you smile, make you laugh, and make you cry. On each page, a new unique and personal story worth sharing.
