Workshop highlighting historical and contemporary accounts of the effects of climate change and unregulated development on indigenous and marginalized groups, and efforts to change these practices.  Examples used previously include Native Americans, Nigerian Ogonis, Ecuadorian Quichans, and communities of women and children in both developed and developing countries.  Guests from these countries bring experiential knowledge of conflicts, commercial exploitations, and political policies  to the classroom, and engage in conversations about how youth actions can ignite positive changes in peoples’ lives.
