Event Summary: Film Screening of Taking Root

We invited all to a screening of “Taking Root.” The film told the story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy.
The screening was followed by remarks from Dr. Joni Seager, Professor and Chair of Bentley University’s Global Studies Department, and a student led discussion.
Co-sponsored by the Sustainability and Environmental Management Program at Harvard Extension School and the HSPH Climate Change and Health Forum.
