Climate change-driven migration is already here, and it will have particularly disruptive impacts on Central America, a region with a significant agricultural workforce. We’ll discuss how climate change will continue to impact farming livelihoods, the underlying forces of migration, and how these trends might ultimately impact Colorado communities.

Join us on Tuesday, October 26 for a wide-ranging conversation around immigration, the border, climate justice, and the changing face of global mobility with an outstanding panel of guests:

  • Rebecca Galemba, Co-Director, University of Denver Center for Immigration and Policy Research
  • Valerie Mueller, Associate Professor and Senior Sustainability Scientist at the Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation, Arizona State University
  • Atim Otii, Director, Office of Immigrant & Refugee Affairs, City of Denver
  • Moderated by Cullen Hendrix, Professor at the Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver

Audience members are invited to send questions in advance for potential inclusion in the conversation.

Everything on the Table: Re-imagining Global-to-Local Food Systems is presented by the Institute for Science & Policy at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Environmental Sustainability Initiative at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies, and the Colorado State University System’s new Spur Campus, International Agriculture Program.
