About this Event

Is global development at odds with environmental justice and health equity? The industries that have historically fueled economic growth have also accelerated climate change and exacerbated issues of global health. How might those interested in both economics and justice reconcile such a tension?

In pursuit of an answer, one thing is clear: the actions of individual people are insufficient to address this collective, global challenge. Only strong, coordinated efforts will ensure lasting change.

The College of Professional Studies M.S. in Global Studies and International Relations program at Northeastern University, alongside the Boston Network for International Development (BNID), will host a symposium at 7:00 PM on Thursday, March 7, 2019 to address these very questions: “International Development, Health and Environmental Justice: Where do we stand? Where are we heading?”

Via a panel discussion, symposium participants will glean knowledge of ongoing initiatives that strive to halt existing environmental and global health dangers. Speakers will describe tangible ways in which students and professionals in the Greater Boston Area can begin to tackle local challenges collectively, which will ultimately contribute to the realization of international economic and justice goals.
