International Fellows & Scholars Welcome Reception Featuring Keynote Speaker Will Steger
Tuesday, September 22, 4:30-6:00 p.m., Cowles Auditorium

The Humphrey School of Public Affairs invites you to join in welcoming the 2015-2016 cohorts of Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows, the Government of India MPA Fellows, and the International Visiting Scholars.

Will Steger, world-renowned polar explorer, educator, photographer, writer and lecturer will present a retrospective of a life in the Arctic regions of the world. The presentation “Eyewitness to Global Warming,” is his vivid account of the changes that he has witnessed firsthand, caused by global warming pollutants, in Arctic regions over four decades of polar exploration. Steger shares stunning photographs from his expeditions along with compelling data and satellite imagery to document the deterioration in the polar ice caps. While the issue is critical, and the presentation is dramatic, Steger’s message is one of hope and empowerment.

The event is co-sponsored by Master of Science in Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy (MS–STEP) program.
