On the 15th of May LGI and AMT organise a special Lecture by Dr. Kumi Naidoo, Executive Director of Greenpeace International titled: ‘What the World Needs Now from the Environmental Movement‘. The lecture is free and open to the public.
What the World Needs Now from the Environmental Movement
Some have described the current moment of world history as a “perfect storm” or a “boiling point”, as a multiple set of crises converge. The impacts of climate change are picking up speed with often devastating consequences. Increased pressures on limited natural resources are inevitably leading to conflict. Globally we see major economic exclusion and a democratic deficit. To play its part effectively, the environmental movement needs to act very differently than it has in the past, applying 21st century practices to 21st century problems.

The institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology offers the Master specialisation ‘Environment and Development‘. It covers the complex relations between people and natural resources. It does so in terms of current modes of resource use as well as in terms of future projections; how to create a better, sustainable world? We analyse interactions between societies and both urban and rural environments. Furthermore, we critically assess various types of solutions for existing environment-and-development problems in order to uncover their long term impact om resources and the effects on existing and future power relations.
