Thinking Globally, Acting Locally

8th Annual Ethnic, Gender, Transborder Studies & Sociology (EGTSS) Summit

Friday, May 10, 9am-4:30pm

Proscenium Theater, West Campus, Pima Community College

“The 8th annual Ethnic, Gender, Transborder Studies & Sociology (EGTSS) Summit of Pima Community College welcomes internationally and locally known leaders in education, culture, and politics for a public conference on topics impacting Tucson’s diverse communities. The spring 2024 summit’s theme is, “Climate Action, Sustainability, and Eco-Justice: Thinking Globally, Acting Locally.” The keynote speaker, Ami Vitale, is an award-winning, internationally recognized, National Geographic photographer, Nikon Ambassador, and documentary filmmaker. Her work spans themes from war to wildlife across the globe, including the Middle East, Africa, and China. Vitale will share, “a series of powerful images and stories about people on the front lines of war, climate change, and extinction who refuse to let cataclysm define their future” (amivitale.com). Her presentation is a visually and emotionally compelling story that will draw the audience to think globally about the summit’s themes and set the stage for panels and workshops to follow that will inform, educate, and teach the public practical skills to address climate change and foster sustainability with a focus on social justice in their own communities.

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided to participants in the day-long events. Tabling by community groups and student exhibits will enhance the day’s activities. The summit will be held on Friday, May 10, approximately 9am-4:30pm at the Proscenium Theater of the West Campus, Pima Community College. Stay tuned for registration and other information.”
