Community Classroom Explores Women & Climate

MARCH 27, 2009 | The University of Wisconsin - River Falls Community Classroom series will present "Women and Global Climate Change: What's the Connection?" on Monday, April 6 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., presented by Greta Gaard, an assistant professor in the UWRF English department.

Gaard, who is the author of "Ecological Politics: Ecofeminism and the Greens" and "The Nature of Home: Taking Root in a Place," will explore what the world's nongovernmental organizations are doing to adapt and prepare for the consequences of first-world behaviors and the social, environmental and economic consequences of those behaviors on communities that are least responsible.

Designed to help people understand and address the vital concerns of the contemporary world, the Community Classroom series is sponsored by the UWRF Outreach and Graduate Studies (OGS) Office and the College of Arts and Sciences and features free, open to the public presentations by UWRF faculty. All Community Classroom events held in the lower level of the River Falls Public Library, located at the corner of Main and Union streets.

UWRF OGS provides lifelong learners with academic, professional development and enrichment programs that are practical, flexible, convenient and affordable. A complete list of courses, course descriptions and online registration information is available at http:/www.uwrf.edu/ogs or can be obtained by calling 715-425-5607 or e-mailing outreach@uwrf.edu .
