Environmental Affairs Symposium

Klan We Talk? (21st Annual Symposium)

Lewis & Clark College’s Environmental Studies Program announces its 21st annual Environmental Symposium, which builds on the theme, Environment Across Boundaries. Students in ENVS cross a wide range of intellectual boundaries as they seek new scholarly concepts and skills; geographic boundaries as they apply these concepts and skills to explore environmental issues around the world; and communication boundaries as they engage with people on all sides of these issues, ideally working toward mutual respect and collaborative solutions. Environment Across Boundaries conveys what is special and significant about how our students at Lewis & Clark College approach environmental issues.

This year’s Symposium welcomes the musician and cultural ambassador, Daryl Davis, best known by many for his recent efforts of reaching out as a black man to members of the KKK. Daryl’s work embodies the spirit of crossing boundaries, and offers a challenge for us to reach out and engage even with our environmental enemies. Environment Across Boundaries means stretching beyond the typical environmental arena and listening to leaders such as Daryl who offer those of us in the environmental community important experience, stories, and strategies; we invite you to join us and stretch your environmental horizons.
