BOULDER, Colo. — In its 75th year, the Conference on World Affairs (CWA) is making its return to the CU Boulder campus.
Being held from April 12-14, the Conference this year has a three-day lineup of in-person and livestreamed events focused on a variety of topics surrounding the global climate crisis.
Of the 34 CWA events, some notable events include:
- Keynote speaker James Balog, global environmental photographer, mountaineer and subject of the Oscar-nominated and Emmy award-winning film Chasing Ice
- Keynote speaker Rose Marcario, former CEO and president of Patagonia Inc., outdoor retailer focused on minimizing climate impacts
- Panel: Colorado River Crisis: Where Do We Go From Here?
- Panel: Democracy in Hotter Times
Furthermore, a beloved tradition of the Conference, "Ebert Interruptus" is a three-day event showcasing a film along with in-depth analysis. Hosted by film critic and author Josh Larsen, the 2023 event will screen a 2019 Macedonian documentary film, Honeyland, directed by Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov.
Two free jazz concerts featuring students and faculty will also be conducted in Macky Auditorium on Wednesday and Thursday night.
Those interested in attending CWA 2023 (in person or virtually) are encouraged to register at no cost to receive conference/schedule updates.
