Fall 2020 Symposium – OLLI at UNL and Winter Lecture Series

Global Displacement: Political Conflict and Climate Change

9:00 am–12:30 pm
Zoom Webinar
Don Wilhite,
In 2019, at least 150 million persons felt compelled to leave their homes because of political or socio-economic reasons outside the bounds of legal migration. Some were fleeing war, other violence, or persecution. Then there were those fleeing absence of economic opportunity or natural disaster, often linked to climate change (not to mention governmental corruption and other malfeasance like failure to control gang warfare). As a result, there was growing demand for an increased international response by public and private agencies. Our half-day symposium examines this pressing problem.

Details for the Zoom connection will be provided to registrants prior to the class.
Cost $10 per person. Open to the public but registration is required.
