Season: 
2014
Description: 

Professor Jan Servaes, Chair Professor and Head of the Department of Media and Communication at the City University of Hong Kong, talks with Fadia Hasan, PhD candidate at UMass Amherst, about her latest work with BGreen. BGreen is an interdisciplinary environmental youth action initiative that was developed as the critical action research component for the Fadia's dissertation. It was designed to target environmental challenges (especially climate change) in Bangladesh. The goal of BGreen was to connect youth grassroots action with ground-up development theory on the environment and explore how the local communities can contribute in generating effective solutions that address their unique contextual, cultural, economic, environmental and humanitarian needs.
