This is a teacher training designed and led by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of Michigan as part of its Title VI National Resource Center outreach program. The event will cover local:global relationships as we explore the integration of water and environmental justice issues in the classroom, connecting events such as the Flint Water Crisis to social and political experiences in Latin America, including but not limited to water privatization in El Salvador, water distribution in Mexico, engineering projects in Colombia, and the Cochabamba Water Wars in Bolivia.
The event is open to all but will be especially geared toward middle and high school teachers as well as community college instructors. Educators in the state of Michigan will receive professional development credits for their participation.
