2021 Human Development Conference | "The Future is Now: Innovative Responses to Global Adversity"

Friday, February 26, 2021 - 1:00pm to 5:15pm

Global development and collaboration cannot be halted due to COVID-19 or any other global adversity. The ways we approach integral human development must be adaptable to our ever-changing global environment. Oftentimes, new solutions are driven by unavoidable barriers and unexpected set-backs, and impressive innovations arise from times of crisis. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, creative adaptability is key to persevering in the mission of integral human development, which is to foster conditions conducive to flourishing for every individual and every community. So far, we have seen a contagious energy as new methods of communication and collaboration inspire hope for the achievement of this mission. In a time with added fear and uncertainty, social connectedness is truly the only way forward. From the bottom up, integral human development must be fueled by a commitment to social connectedness through inclusive discourse and collaborative innovation. This conference is sponored by the Center for Social Concerns, Ford Program in Human Development and Solidarity, and School for International Training

In light of COVID-19, this year all students will be presenting virtually via Zoom.
