Environmental Activism in Russia

February 21, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us for a meeting of the New York-Russia Public Policy Series, co-hosted by the New York University Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia and the Harriman Institute at Columbia University.

Our panel of distinguished experts will discuss the growing environmental activism movement in Russia. We will be joined by both academics and activists who will explore the unique challenges that environmental activists have faced and continue to endure in Russia. They will also assess the results achieved to date by the Russian environmentalist movement, both from those operating within the country and those abroad.

This event is supported by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
