Mansfield Center Spring and Fall Lecture Series
Managing Natural Resources and Environmental Challenges in a Global World
Wednesday, September 12 at Noon
Davidson Honors College Room 119
Speakers: Fellows in the U.S. Department of State's Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative on Natural Resource Management
In an increasingly interconnected world, managing natural resources is truly a global question. Southeast Asian young leaders join us at UM to discuss their U.S. State Department fellowship, with a focus on the essential role trans-boundary collaboration plays in global environment issues. Fellows from Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Thailand will share reflections on their Montana experience from the context of their home countries.
Every semester, the Mansfield Center Lecture series draws on members of the University and Missoula communities and on visiting foreign scholars and fellows to create a series of talks on a wide variety of topics, from international development, to exchange opportunities, to public policy and ethical dilemmas. All lectures are free and open to the public. Attendees are invited to bring a lunch to enjoy during the lecture.
