Wellesley welcomed former Vice President Al Gore to campus to deliver the 2018 Wilson Lecture on April 25. Seated onstage with interlocutor Sue Wagner ’82, Gore addressed climate change. “I’m convinced the world is in the early changes of a sustainability revolution that has the magnitude of the industrial revolution, but the speed of the digital revolution,” he said. “But I’m here not just to give you information. I’m here to recruit you. Every great, morally based revolution that has advanced the cause of humankind has been led in significant measure by young people and students.” If finger snapping is any measure, Wellesley students are ready to take up the charge.
