Seminar and Discussion Series

Fall 2016

The fall 2016 seminar and discusssion series will include variety of formats and topics.  Shifting away from our traditional model of bi-weekly seminars, we will instead be hosting and co-sponsoring a variety of events, panels, and talks throughout the fall to engage both the CSU campus community as well as the greater Fort Collins and northern Colorado community.  All events will be posted on our homepage, our biweekly newsletter, as well as through the university calendar.  If you have a suggestion or a topic, please let us know!

Village Earth and the Center for Collaborative Conservation are hosting a very special presentation on community-based mapping and GIS by  Enkhtungalag Chuluunbaatar from the Ger Communty Mapping Center based-in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia. Ulaanbaatar, capital city of Mongolia is home to almost half of the country’s population, in which more than 60% live in the ger area. Centralized administrative power, rapid urbanization, economic and political instability calls for a stronger civil society with a vision for long-term, sustainable, and inclusive development. Ger Community Mapping Center sees community mapping as one of the tools to inform and empower local communities and the general public to promote participatory decision-making. Community mapping draws on the implicit knowledge within local communities on everyday issues with long-term consequences.
