Urban Sustainability in India with Dr. Kurt Dershem

Wednesday Apr. 17, 2019 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


SCC Philosophy instructor Dr. Kurt Dershem will talk about his recent experience in India on April 17 from Noon - 1 pm in C129 on SCC's North Mankato Campus and C23 on the Faribault Campus.

Dr. Dershem traveled to India for a faculty workshop in January of this year. The program focused on urban sustainability, highlighting the many challenges Indian cities face due to population growth, economic development and dangerous levels of pollution. Dr. Dershem will place their problems in the broader context of global environmental concerns and discuss some of the Indian NGOs (non-governmental organizations) that are working to address these problems.
