Annual UCSC Right Livelihood College Lecture Indigenous Peoples' Day

Annual UCSC Right Livelihood College Lecture Indigenous Peoples' Day Presentation and Dialogue With Survival International Founder Stephen Corry

Oct 12 I 5:00-7:00pm Kresge Seminar Room #159

What are some of the current issues facing tribal communities? What role do tribal peoples' play in conservation? How can we collaborate on issues of common concern?

Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights invites you to a discussion about indigenous peoples and the myths/cons that lead to their abuse. Economic progress and environmentalism are the dominant opposing ideologies claiming to save the world, yet tribal peoples–the best guardians of the natural world–are being destroyed by both. This discussion is led by Survival director Stephen Corry, activist for tribal peoples for 40 years.

Survival International was given the Right Livelihood Award, known as the Alternative Nobel Prize, in 1989 for their work. In 2013 Kresge's Common Ground Center became the first Right Livelihood College in North America. Click here to learn more.
