Earth Day Events

Posted in Events

In observation of Earth Day this April, the Georgetown Environment Initiative (GEI) (new window), the Georgetown Humanities Initiative (new window), and the Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics (new window) are pleased to announce the following events at the intersection of environmental science, arts, and the humanities. Linking environmental journalism, literary writing, activist performance, and critical approaches to climate change and language, these discussions represent the first run of what will become a yearly series of interdisciplinary events called “Voices on the Environment.” 

For this year’s series, we have prepared four different events. A description for each event has been provided in each of their registration links. The following listing can also be found in our website: environment.georgetown.edu/engage-with-us/voices-on-the-environment/ (new window).
