Global Challenges/Interdisciplinary Answers (public)

November 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE/PUBLIC EVENT

Global Challenges 2022

Let’s think together about the power of place and care.

Our annual public event draws from different stories and areas of knowledge to collaboratively consider a problem that’s keeping students up at night. Honors students, staff and faculty invite our broader community on campus and beyond to join our conversation on the power (and politics) of place.

With passionate speakers from public health, sociology, ethnic studies, geography, and history, we’ll explore how communities respond to systems and events that disrupt relationships to place (like colonialism, war, climate change, or global pandemics); explore how people and communities sustain themselves in the face of such displacements through creative adaptation and collective care; and find opportunities to honor the radical placemaking work of vulnerable communities and coalitions who are leading the way.

Monday, Nov. 7 @ 6:00 p.m. (PST), HUB Lyceum, UW Campus (livestream will also be available)
