PLEASE NOTE: the new start time for the event.

UN Environment Assembly Book Discussion co-hosted by the McCormack Graduate School and United Nations Environment Progamme

Environment is the foundation for human wellbeing. Who speaks for it? Who leads on it? UNEP’s fiftieth anniversary offers opportunity to reflect on its core mandate, raise awareness about its accomplishments, and solicit input on its future. The Untold Story of the World's Leading Environmental Institution: UNEP at Fifty by Professor Maria Ivanova presents a powerful tool to understand UNEP’s past and performance and reimagine its potential.

This book is “a must-read for scholars, policymakers, activists, and industry—especially those tasked with leading humanity out of the current global environmental crisis,” notes Zakri Abdul Hamid, former Science Advisor to the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
