Meeting the Environmental Challenges of the 21st Century: You, Me and Society

On Wednesday 29th May, FoE Tayside and the Baha’i Scottish Council will be co-hosting a talk by Dr Arthur Dahl on “Meeting the Environmental Challenges of the 21st Century: You, Me and Society.” The talk will begin at 7pm at the Chaplaincy, University of Dundee. (Refreshments available!)

Dr Arthur Dahl is a world authority on sustainable development, with over 50 years of international experience. As he says himself, “it has been the focus of my whole career even before the term was coined!” It has taken him all over the world, from advising in developing countries to playing an important role in the Rio Summit talks of 2012. Dr Dahl was previously a Deputy Assistant Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and has worked as a consultant on sustainable development for the World Bank. Dr Dahl is now President of the International Environment Forum, and has most recently turned his experience to the challenge of presenting a highly acclaimed set of proposals on Global Governance for the reform and strengthening of the UN. We hope this event will be of great interest to all who care about the future of our planet!

To accommodate this talk, we’ll be holding our monthly meeting at the earlier start time of 6pm
