Critical of Development? Attend tonight’s coffee chat with Dr. Susan Bolton

The Critical Development Forum (CDF) is a group of UW students committed to exploring the ethics of development. Tonight, the CDF is hosting its fall Kickoff Meeting/Coffee Chat with Dr. Susan Bolton @ Cafe Allegro, 2nd floor, at 6pm.

Susan Bolton, Ph.D., P.E. is a professor in the department of Environmental and Forest Sciences as well as an adjunct professor in the departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Global Health. She is a faculty adviser for the UW student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) and sits on the board of directors for EWB-USA. She is also a member of the UW Global Health/Environmental Change group. Most recently she has been working with a landscape architect on slum improvements in Lima, Peru, and conducting project reviews for the World Water Corps.

Dr. Bolton will be hosting a discussion title “Ecology to Engineering to Development: Why I don’t sleep as well as I used to,” and will be sharing her experiences with development projects in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Bolivia and Peru.

CDF is very excited to have Dr. Bolton open up its academic year. Please come, drink coffee (or tea!) and participate in an informal but critical discussion. Afterwards, CDF will be holding a planning meeting at 7pm. If you have been wanting to get involved in CDF, now is the chance! We will introduce the many committees you can join next Tuesday. Hope to see you!
