Description

Howdy!

Please join a unique evening centered on discussing the relation between HIV/AIDS and climate change. There will be an emphasis on exploring the topic alongside poverty and sustainable living in southern Africa. However, we encourage attendees to make connections to their own lives and life in Ontario during discussion.

Our wonderful presenter for this event is Dr. Amrite Daniere, a Professor of geography at the University of Toronto and Co-Director of the Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia Partnership. (full bio below)

Following a short presentation, there will be time for attendees to ask questions and engage in a general facilitated conversation.

Climate change is a really difficult yet necessary topic to discuss. However, it is in discussing it among community and with each other that we can build hope for a future that fights against climate change, and the various oppressive systems of power that make it possible.Th e event is intended to be informal (no academic or professional experiences needed), and we aim to make it a space where everyone can feel safe, regardless of your age, race, gender, sexuality, disability or HIV status!
