Sustainability & Social Justice Symposium Videos Available on Taubman College Vimeo Channel
"Sustainability & Social Justice: Conflicting Urgencies," took place last month on October 19th, 2012 in the Rackham Amphitheater on the campus of the University of Michigan.
Economic inequity and poverty are a daily reality for billions of people worldwide. Climate change and other impending crises threaten ecosystems and population centers across the planet. Each of these crises demands immediate attention, but they are often in conflict. Which takes precedence? How can we address them both?
