Youth, Gender, and the Environment: 

A Global Perspective

Join us on January 24, 2019 at 7pm. Cohasset's Tori Hart will deliver a fascinating talk about her Peace Corps experiences in Malawi. 

 
 
 
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in an African village with no running water, modern plumbing and no refrigeration? This lecture will talk about just this and bring us face to face with our own conspicuous consumption. Tori has served in the Peace Corps for three years in Malawi, a Sub-Saharan African country known as “The Warm Heart of Africa” because of its friendly people and peaceful history. She’ll talk about what poverty looks like in Malawi where 50% of Malawians live in poverty and 25% live in extreme poverty. Additionally, Tori will offer her perspecitve on the effects of climate change and deforestation in Malawi and how these factors contribute to gender inequality.
