The conference is this week! Lebanon's Media Association for Peace hosts the First National Conference on Media, Peace and the Environment. Speakers will reflect on how the concepts of peace journalism and environmental peacebuilding intersect, exploring issues of climate change, oil and natural resources, the country's waste management crisis, and public engagement.
This project is the primary reason I'm working with the Media Association for Peace - the least hands-on environmental action-y (yes, that's a technical term) of my research groups but the most explicitly focused on the ideas of environmental peacebuilding. The conference is what the majority of my work with MAP thus far has focused on.
Happening Saturday...here's hoping all of us manage to get at least some sleep this week. ;)
