Do stories in the Coloradan ever make you think differently, inspire you to want to learn more or even take action? Have you ever brought up the topic around the dinner table or shared the story with a fellow CU Boulder alum? That kind of community-led discussion is the impetus for the new dialogue series: Coloradan Conversations. 

Each Coloradan Conversation will bring alumni together to discuss a singular topic or theme relevant not only on campus, but around the world. Rather than listening to a lecture, this series invites alumni to engage and connect with thought leaders and fellow Forever Buffs about topics presented in the Coloradan alumni magazine.

Climate Change and Its Impact on Human Rights

From increasing droughts and wildfires to polluted air and deforestation, natural disasters have an enormous impact on humans, including Indigenous ways of life. Inspired by a recent story collection in the Coloradan — “Justice for Earth, Justice for Humans” — CU experts and faculty will share insights and research at Coloradan Conversations: Climate Change and Its Impact on Human Rights. Join the conversation on Wednesday, Sept. 7, and leave inspired to take action.
