Global Engagement 2022 Desmarais Family Summit: Water in the World

Monday, April 4, 2022 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

Join the Global Engagement 2022 Desmarais Family Summit at the St. Paul's Ceremonial Firegrounds. This is an outdoor, public event featuring projects by our Global Engagement Seminar students, and contributions from our six distinguished 2022 Jarislowsky fellows.

The Global Engagement Seminar is a senior undergraduate course that brings together students from across the University with experts and mentors to develop solutions for contemporary global problems. 

The Winter 2022 seminar (ARTS 490) theme is Water in the World: Environment, Knowledge, Ethics, and Practice. Course instructors are Dr. Jennifer Liu (department of Anthropology, Faculty of Arts) and Dr. Heidi Swanson (department of Biology, Faculty of Science) are leading this term's examination of water from multiple perspectives — from public health to media to equity issues, and more.

Read about the six 2022 Jarislowsky Fellows and their diverse backgrounds that share (at least) one thing in common: water.
