This is the second day of a two-day virtual workshop on peacebuilding, climate change, and migration. The first day of the workshop is March 22, 2022; participants are welcome to attend for just one or both days.

On this second day, we will examine understudied regions which are at substantial risk of climate change impacts, including Latin America, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. What resources, methods, and approaches can help us better understand the relationship between peacebuilding, climate change, and migration in these understudied regions? How can we...

A horse is a horse… or is it? We know that humans and animals experience the world differently, but it’s challenging to gauge the extent of these differences or apply this understanding to how we treat animals in our care.

In this webcast, Cornell University veterinarian and equine welfare specialist Lindsay Goodale will take you into the mind — and body — of a horse to explore the interrelationship among animal cognition, biology, and welfare. Using horses as a case study, Dr. Goodale will explain how the study of animals’ perceptive and cognitive abilities, along with their...

Two In-Person Keynote Talks with Dr. Beronda Montgomery, author of Lessons from Plants

Mentoring is often positioned as the transfer of information from an experienced, senior individual (or mentor) to a junior, inexperienced individual (or mentee). Implicit in this description are the ideas that at the core of mentoring is a process of teaching – to guide, instruct and that mentoring may largely be a one-way flow of information. Increasingly, however, mentoring is being understood as a process best...

What do we mean when we talk about environmental justice?  Usually, we mean the crucial struggle against specific forms of injustice: dirty factories in poor, Black-majority neighborhoods; unequal access to green space; radioactive waste seeping into Native water supplies; the poisoning of Latinx farm workers; the flight of refugees from drought, famine, fires, and storms.  But environmental justice can also offer us a radical, positive vision of collective thriving—as a historical perspective...
