Events

Climate Change, Culture Exchange
Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 3:00pm to Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 4:30pm

Ever since the Industrial Revolution in 1760, the carbon dioxide level has increased dramatically in an unprecedented fashion. From global temperature rise and warming oceans to shrinking ice sheets and sea level rising, we see how Earth is changing itself to accommodate for the increasing destruction of the environment (cite). However, from the beginning of time, our ancestors have been very kind to Earth resulting in a variety of indigenous sustainability practices. Join us for an open discussion about climate change and how it affects our home and people as well as share ways in which your communities have sustained Earth. 

 We strive to make our events inclusive and accessible. In order to ensure that reasonable accommodations are provided in time, please make your requests as soon as possible to piaaa@pdx.edu or (503) 725-9390.

Location: Pacific Islander, Asian and Asian American Student Center (SMSU 235)
