This fall, Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education begins another series of free workshops on Contemporary Global Challenges and Opportunities for Change.
You’re invited to a workshop on Responding to Disasters and Refugees on Tuesday, October 22, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Led by expert instructors with a wealth of experience in relief projects around the world, this free workshop will explore current humanitarian disasters and refugee crises, and the range of international responses.
Topics for exploration and discussion include why some disasters and refugee crises attract global attention while others are barely on the radar; programming standards and different international responses (South Asian tsunami, Haitian earthquake, Syrian conflict); and the search for lasting solutions to refugee crises.
Workshops are presented free-of-charge, but space is limited – early registration is recommended. Please RSVP today!
