12th Annual Golden West College Peace Conference Addresses Peace and the Global Economy

On April 20th, Golden West College will be hosting their 2018 Peace Conference in the GWC Student Center. This year’s conference will focus on the vital role of economics in helping to shape societies defined by social justice, environmental sustainability, and cultural equity. Through lectures, panel discussions, interactive question-and-answer sessions, and artistic installations, particular attention will be paid to addressing income inequality, environmental pollution, food insecurity, emerging technologies, and racial and gender discrimination. This rigorous exploration of the relationship between economic policy and social democracy will enable conference attendees to envision how they might help in contributing to economies that serve the health and well-being of all communities. Admission (includes vegan breakfast and lunch, conference materials and gifts, and parking) will be free for GWC students with advance registration, $15 for other students, and $30 ($40 at the door) for the general public.
