Apathy and Action: Exploring Youth-Driven Movements

Dear Members of the Middlebury Community,

2014 marked a watershed year for youth activism. Many of the social movements that made headlines – from Occupy Central in Hong Kong to the People’s Climate March in New York – were driven by the passion and energy of the youth. This pressing subject is the topic of the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs second annual student-designed conference, Apathy and Action: Exploring Youth-Driven Movements.

The conference brings a diverse line up of speakers and events to campus from Thursday, Feb. 19th to Friday, Feb. 20th. We encourage you to mark your calendars now. You can find out more at the conference website: go/youth

Please contact us if you have any questions or ideas regarding this year’s theme.
