The Untold Story of the World's Leading Environmental Institution: Maria Ivanova with Living on Earth
Time & Location
About the Event
The United Nations Environment Programme was founded in 1972 as "the world's environmental conscience." But as our world faces greater environmental challenges than ever before, some critics say UNEP has failed to deliver on its promise to avert these crises. The new book, The Untold Story of the World's Leading Environmental Institution: UNEP at Fifty provides a rare and more optimistic window into the organization's achievements and opportunity for reinvention at this critical moment. Join Host Steve Curwood of the public radio show and podcast Living on Earth and the UMass Boston McCormack Graduate School for a conversation with author Maria Ivanova about the past, present, and possible future of UNEP, with an introduction from Christiana Figueres. This conversation is part of the Living on Earth Book Club and is free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by Living on Earth, the UMass Boston McCormack Graduate School, the Center for Governance and Sustainability, and the UMass Boston School for the Environment.
