Speaker: Chris Williams
Date: March 31st, 2011
Place: 201 Sullivan Science Building, UNCG
With a global environmental crisis in food production, climate change, biodiversity loss and social inequity, how can we take inspiration from the events in Egypt and Wisconsin to build a movement for real change? In building a movement, what can we learn from the fact that women bear a disproportionate burden of the effects of climate change and
yet are at the forefront of the fight against it?
