Challenges of Nature: International Mother Earth Day

Ladies and gentlemen!

On the 22nd of april, AiiA will once again host the annual celebration of the International Mother Earth Day. This year our focus will be on the many challenges that nature and the people protecting it face in 2021.

We have the pleasure of having Anders Sanchez Barfod from Aarhus Universitet who will tell us about the challenges of biodiversity on a global as well as a local level and Misha Wolsgaard-Iversen from Oxfam IBIS who will enlighten the Indigenous Peoples fight for the environment. More is on the agenda but remains yet a surprise. What we can share with you is, that we will show a series of short videos of sustainable projects in Latin America that all share the same purpose – environmental protection. So, join us on the 22nd of April!

Note that the event will be online and in English.

Formålet med AIIA

Formålet med AIIA er at danne bro mellem den akademiske verden og det danske samfund. Vi er et forum for udvikling af personlig og professionel kontakt mellem de studerende, dimittender og undervisere, og for udveksling af viden og bibringelse af dybere kulturforståelse mellem den akademiske verden og foreninger og institutioner i Danmark. Organisationen har af denne årsag især fokus på interkulturalitet og interkulturel kommunikation.
