GHI Workshop: Vision Village – Oct. 3rd 2016

IMG_9589Welcome back to school! The Global Health Initiative’s first exciting workshop of the school year will be creating a “Vision Village”. This workshop will be taking place on October 3rd, at 6 pm.

This workshop will be hosted by the GHI student leaders. They will be facilitating the workshop that gives students an opportunity to imagine and learn about our global heath through drawing and mapping on paper in groups. It also provides an opportunity for more deeply understanding advocacy, power struggles and collective action to uphold the dignity and respect we all seek. Our discussion will touch on themes of sustainable development, colonialism & hegemony, and autonomy vs. paternalism.
