Community M-Room: Sustainability: La Lucha Del Pueblo/ The Fight of the People

Sustainability: La Lucha Del Pueblo/ The Fight of the People. The 21st Century Dilemma between Development and Degradation. A conversation around how free trade agreements and structural adjustments toward the privatization of vital resource extraction processes impact vulnerable communities especially indigenous nations in the Global South. This Virtual M-Room is intended to be a discussion around access to clean water, quality air, and preservation of biodiversity. The dialogue hopes to see if sustainable development is feasible by engaging with M-Room participants to undergo a feasibility study of this equilibrium that limits the adverse effects of displacement, environmental degradation, and exploitation of laborers. Hosted by Ronald Johnson, Graduate Student, and Campus Engagement and Outreach Graduate Assistant Office of Sustainability, Latinx Student Alliance, and the Latino Leadership Alliance of the Lehigh Valley.
