Boyer Colloquium: Climate Change, Disasters, and Human Migration
Monday, April 17, 2023
Location: Student/Conference Center (H) and Zoom™
Climate change causes a cascading chain of atmospheric events, including new patterns of precipitation, erosion, and extreme weather — challenging the resiliency of our infrastructure and lifestyles. These events have devastating impacts, forcing people to move in search of safe locations to rebuild their lives and livelihoods. The presentation will also explore the environmental, legal, political, economic, and social solutions communities have developed to manage the effects of migration.
This evening colloquium is free and open to Highland’s campus and the community.
