Wednesday, April 11
McKeen Center Common Room, Banister Hall

Adam Ureneck, a 2004 Bowdoin graduate (Environmental Studies & History), has worked in Peru for over nine years, both as a student and organizer for Solidaridad en Marcha, an international organization dedicated to working with the poorest of the poor. Based in his experience in Lima's shantytowns as well as his development work in Perus High Andes, Adam will specifically address the problem of relying entirely on technical solutions to the many challenges that face a complex cultural and social reality such as the one found in Perus highland region. Join us for this brown bag lunch talk in the McKeen Center common room, Banister 102.
