Webinars from 2018:

How War Threatens the Environment: On September 27, 2018 we hosted a webinar exploring the links between war and the environment. One of the most destructive of human behaviors, war is a leading contributor to the growing global environmental crisis. This webinar featured experts Gar Smith and Tamara Lorincz speaking about how war – in all its stages, from the production of weapons through combat – pollutes land, air, and water, and drains limited natural resources.
