Global Advocacy for Local Change: A conversation with Ambassador Maritza Chan, Permanent Representative of Costa Rica to the United Nations
You are cordially invited to join a conversation with Ambassador Maritza Chan, the first woman to serve as the Permanent Representative of Costa Rica to the United Nations, and Carnegie Mellon University’s Sustainability Initiative Director Alexandra Hiniker. Ambassador Chan will share what Costa Rica's priorities are at the United Nations, how she employs the Sustainable Development Goals to advance that agenda, and how universities can help the world achieve these ambitious objectives by 2030. There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end of the session, with priority given to questions submitted by students.
The event is co-sponsored by the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion, the Department of Modern Languages, the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy, the Institute for Politics and Strategy, the School of Design, and the Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research.
