UPeace Opens Doors to Environmental Awareness Debate
Climate Change: Disaster or Opportunity?
By Ashley Steyaert

On Saturday April 17th The University for Peace is hosting a conference addressing the question: While climate change will undoubtedly have negative impacts, does it also hold the potential for new social, economic and political opportunities?

In the words of Conference Director Thomas Lawfield “This one day conference will include a variety of lectures, panel discussions and workshops on the theme of climate change and related policy - from the grassroots to the global stage. As stated, it will feature cutting edge work in climate related research and policy, with a focus on interdisciplinary perspectives.”

Tickets are now on sale for $12.00 per person, which includes bus service to and from the UPeace campus in Ciudad Colon, an organic lunch, and conference certificate.

Lecturers from all over the Americas including Costa Rica, Canada, The United States and Argentina will discuss the topics of climate change, green building, economics and carbon neutrality, to name a few. The conference will be held in English and is scheduled to run from 8:30am until 6:00pm.
