About the event

21st Peter M. Wege Lecture on Sustainability: Mary Robinson

Climate Justice: Hope, Resilience & the Fight for a Sustainable Future

First woman President of Ireland and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

Introduction and Q&A by U-M Provost Laurie McCauley

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.

This in-person event is free and open to the public; reserve your ticket here.

Presented by the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability and the Center for Sustainable Systems.
