Bridging the Gap Between Climate Change Theory and Experience Conference
April 4 – 6, 2013
Dillard University Deep South Center for Environmental Justice
Professional Schools Building, Rooms 131/135
This conference will focus on the disproportionate impact of climate change on vulnerable and marginalized communities. Conference sessions will address racial, social, public health, and economic disparities in the wake of climate related disasters. The conference will serve as a call-to-action for students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to become engaged in the conversation around climate and justice. Discussions related to students becoming a part of the green economy will also be a major focus.
This is an exciting venture to fully engage African American students through education and training on issues related to climate change and its adverse impacts. It is our expectation that this conference will catalyze students around issues related to the environment and prepare the next generation of leaders to bring solutions to climate change. The conference is free for Dillard University faculty, staff and students, however you must register to attend. See attached flyer for more information or contact Mary I. Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-816-4028.
