March 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Mary Robinson

Join Robinson as she shares her passion for climate justice, human dignity, gender equality and women’s participation in peace-building. She will highlight the urgent need for climate change action and how local, community-based action can grow into a global effort to build a sustainable future.

The Peter M. Wege Lecture Series focuses on the critical sustainability challenges of the 21st century, such as energy security and declining fossil resources, global climate change, freshwater scarcity, ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss, and sustainability strategies in developed and developing nations. Named in honor of Peter M. Wege, late vice-chair of the board of Steelcase, Inc., and renowned sustainability champion, the series brings internationally recognized leaders in sustainability to the University of Michigan campus.
