Former director-general of the World Health Organization, medical doctor and former prime minister of Norway, Gro Harlem Brundtland, will speak in the Grand Ballroom of the Lory Student Center March 2 at 6:30 p.m.
In addition to playing a role in major political developments, such as the signing of the 1993 Oslo Accord between Israeli and Palestinian leaders, Brundtland has been a leader in the field of health, climate change and the environment.
Nearly 20 years ago, Brundtland coined the term “social development” as “development that meets the needs and aspirations of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Gro Brundtland will address students and community members about social development, health and climate change.
Admission to the event is free. Tickets are required and can be reserved through the Campus Box Office.
