The Global Movement for Environmental Justice: A Forum to Bring Together Two Prominent Indian EJ Activists and the UW community in Conversation
Thursday May 16th, 2013, 3:30-5pm in CMU 226
Even though we know that environmental and social justice movements around the world are connected, it is difficult to actually piece together how we all are linked. Join us for an informal conversation on the connections between “here and there” with two members of the internationally-recognized Environment Support Group from Bangalore, India. We will map out the most pressing issues that EJ activists in both Seattle and Bangalore are organizing around, and better understand the local and global stakes in this work.
Co-sponsored by the Simpson Center for the Humanities, the Comparative History of Ideas Department, the UW Honors Program, the South Asia Center in the Jackson School for International Studies, and the UW English Department.
