Restoring the Jordan: A Pathway to Peace

Event information
Venue:MMC - RDB 1000

As Florida's Secretary of State, Senator Richard Stone led a successful initiative to clean up the polluted Miami River. The Senator's interest in the Jordan River helped lead to the passage of US Senate Resolution 387, which urged the governments of Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority to work in concert to reverse the river's degradation.

Senator Stone's lecture will be followed by an interdisciplinary panel discussion featuring FIU faculty members Shlomi Dinar, associate professor of politics and international relations; Whitney Bauman, assistant professor of religious studies; Bruce Harvey, associate professor of English and associate director of the School of Environment, Arts and Society; and Alberto Tejada, executive officer of the USAID Global Waters for Sustainability Program and former director of the UNESCO Division of Water Sciences.

The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Mar. 22 in Rafael-Diaz Balart Hall (RDB) room 1000 on Modesto A. Maidique Campus (MMC). The panel will be followed by a kosher wine and hors d'oeuvres reception. This event is free and open to the public. For more information please see the attached flyer.
