The Virginia League of Conservation Voters and the VCU Department of Political Science will host “Humanitarianism x Environmentalism,” an opportunity to learn more about how humanitarian relief efforts are affected by climate change and vice versa, and how to address the crises we will be facing in the near future. Joining us at this forum will be a diverse panel to address a wide variety of pressing environmental and humanitarian issues at the local, national, and global levels. Following the moderator-led portion of the forum, event attendees will have the chance to ask questions. We sincerely hope you will join us for this informative and engaging event.
