Angela Park, executive director of Diversity Matters, and author of Everybodys Movement, will be the keynote speaker to kick off a day-long symposium on social justice and diversity in the environmental movement.
The event brings together practitioners and experts in the environmental justice movement who will focus on the interconnected issues of environmental health, conservation politics, and climate change.
This symposium is free to Bowdoin students, staff, and faculty. A $10 registration fee to cover lunch is asked of other participants.
There has been a robust response to this event, and we cannot guarantee lunch for anyone registering from this point forward. We will do our best to make room for everyone who wants to attend though.
If for some reason your plans change, and you can no longer attend, please e-mail Rosie @ firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make your seat (and lunch) available to someone else.
Thanks, see you Saturday.
