K-16 Opportunity! Hybrid Event

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) promotes global understanding through support for teaching, learning, and research in and on Latin America, the Caribbean, and the diverse diasporic communities of Latin American and Caribbean origin. The region has been characterized by tremendous innovation and approaches to education and public health while facing political, economic and social challenges.

For this workshop we have partnered with the Global Studies Center to introduce topics associated with the sustainability, development and conservation of the Amazon region. This course introduces significant topics associated with the sustainability of the Amazon region, where more than 30 million people live, inside an area comprising part of nine countries in South America. Almost 80% of the Amazon’s population is settled in urban areas.

This workshop engages with preservation and development issues in the Amazon region, promoting critical thinking about its current and future sustainability. We will work through approaches to the region’s role in water and food security, clean energy supplies, and climate change.
